Seymour Hersh Exile

Since 2013, Seymour Hersh was forced to publish his article "Whose Sarin?"[3] in LRB, after he struggled to find any American corporate media (including the New Yorker and Washington Post, which for decades always had accepted his work before) willing to publish it.

His article cast doubt on the official propaganda line on the war in Syria. Hersh stated that Obama—like his predecessor George W. Bush did in the case of Iraq—Obama administration "cherry-picked intelligence" surrounding a 2013 chemical attack outside of Damascus in order "to justify a [military] strike against" against the regime of President Bashar al Assad.
