"That's very old news and was exposed as bunk perpetuated by traitorous have-beens"

I know it's old news but who exposed it as bunk? I'd like to know.

Here's a copy with a link to the original. IMO, we don't need pro-terrorist, anti-American propaganda here.

Statement from Pentagon Spokesman Lawrence DiRita on Latest Seymour Hersh Article

            The Iranian regime’s apparent nuclear ambitions and its demonstrated support for terrorist organizations is a global challenge that deserves much more serious treatment than Seymour Hersh provides in the New Yorker article titled “The Coming Wars.” 


            Mr. Hersh’s article is so riddled with errors of fundamental fact that the credibility of his entire piece is destroyed.  


            Mr. Hersh’s source(s) feed him with rumor, innuendo, and assertions about meetings that never happened, programs that do not exist, and statements by officials that were never made.


            A sampling from this article alone includes:






            By his own admission, Mr. Hersh evidently is working on an “alternative history” novel.  He is well along in that work, given the high quality of “alternative present” that he has developed in several recent articles.


            Mr. Hersh’s preference for single, anonymous, unofficial sources for his most fantastic claims makes it difficult to parse his discussion of Defense Department operations. 


            Finally, the views and policies Mr. Hersh ascribes to Secretary Rumsfeld, Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz, Under Secretary Feith, and other Department of Defense officials do not reflect their public or private comments or administration policy.
