Seymour Hersh: On the Push For War Against Syria

The discussion of this lead up to war certainly came and went quickly.

One thing that comes out in this interview is the determined opposition to the Administration's goals and the power of the Executive Branch that came out of the intelligence community and the Pentagon.  Perhaps there were some lessons learned in the Iraq war after all.

It is too bad that the lessons presented from the financial crisis of 2008 have not had a similar effect.

Hersh's closing remarks on the role of journalism are quite simple and to the point.
