Sy Hersh Unveils His Latest Evil Dick Cheney Thing: Moles!
AncientNew Yorker reporter Seymour Hersh is so insanely well-sourced in the realms of defense, state, and intelligence that it's hard to tell how accurate his terrifying talesaboutDick Cheney are, because no other journalist is capable of seconding him. But they sure make for great blog posts! Just find the key paragraph, blockquote it, add Star Wars photo and BLAM, everyone's scared shitless of Dick Cheney all over again. He's like the Final Boss on 24 -- the one who shows up in the 18th hour or so and is revealed to be the true corporate puppetmaster behind previous fake Final Bosses, who were in fact just diversions, and expendable. Huh? Oh yes, Seymour Hersh says Dick Cheney is spying on Obama.
Hersh went on NPR to drop his latest Cheney bomb, so as to scare the hippies as efficiently as possible:
“Are you saying that you think Vice President Cheney is still having a chilling effect on people who might otherwise be coming forward,” asked Gross. “I’ll make it worse,” answered Hersh, adding that he believes Cheney “put people back” in government to “stay behind” in order to “tell him what’s going on” and perhaps even “do sabotage”:HERSH: I’ll make it worse. I think he’s put people left. He’s put people back. They call it a stay behind. It’s sort of an intelligence term of art. When you leave a country and, you know, you’ve driven out the, you know, you’ve lost the war. You leave people behind. It’s a stay behind that you can continue to contacts with, to do sabotage, whatever you want to do. Cheney’s left a stay behind. He’s got people in a lot of agencies that still tell him what’s going on. Particularly in defense, obviously. Also in the NSA, there’s still people that talk to him. He still knows what’s going on. Can he still control policy up to a point? Probably up to a point, a minor point. But he’s still there. He’s still a presence.
Next week Hersh will reveal that Dick Cheney also got plastic surgery and is using the alias "Steven Chu" to spy on Cabinet meetings.
