Oprah Time

I finally managed to finish Seymour Hersh's book Chain of Command. The book seems to be a well researched critical look at the realpolitik and decisions that have driven the war on terror. The book builds on research that Hirsch did for articles about the war on terror for The New Yorker magazine.

Hersh is not just a journalist or a writer but a major cultural figure. His work as a freelancer that exposed the My Lai massacre in Vietnam impacted as much on the public consciousness as Woodward and Bernstein.

Hersh however, managed to remain an outsider, while Woodward wrote the presidents story of 9/11 and beyond; Hersh was given the key to the naughty cupboard by sources that he had cultivated over the decades.
