Skip to comments.Report: U.S. 'preparing the battlefield' in Iran
Posted on 06/29/2008 3:11:12 PM PDT by Perdogg
The Bush administration has launched a "significant escalation" of covert operations in Iran, sending U.S. commandos to spy on the country's nuclear facilities and undermine the Islamic republic's government, journalist Seymour Hersh said Sunday.

SeyMAIer Herschbuckle is at it again.
Nice to know that this man is soooo important as to be informed by the Bush Administration what their plans are concerning Iran. /sarc
This is the 267 consecutive week Hersh has made that prediction.
At least he’s consistent.
Everyone had better gas up ASAP. Anyone want to wager how long before oil reaches $200 per barrel?
Did Scott “Burger King” Ritter, Gnome Chomsky, Ward “Injun Chief” Churchill and Cindy “Mother Moonbat” Sheehan contribute to Hersch’s report?
I want a crystal ball like he has.
CNN: Spying for the enemy since 1980.
Seymour Hersh has been posting made up Anti-American stories for decades. Some really leftist democrat has fed him the story about the 400 million.
I doubt if he knows much more than that. What he usually does is take one bit of accurate information that is supposedly secret and then blow it up with lies and anonymous sourced speculation.
What this tells me is that all those Democrats trashing what bush is doing to protect the USA are just playing politics with the issue. They want to win. So they claim there is no threat while voting for money to combat the (non existent) threat.
They think voters are too dumb to figure it out. But Democrats voting money for a war they say is unjustified, and voting money for espionage in a foreign countries they say is not a threat, shows us what liars the Democrats are.
And who would know better than Seymour...? (s/)
I stopped there......
I suspect there was mor cheering on 9/11 in the CNN offices than anywhere in the Middle East.
But are they setting the table or setting the stage?
Imanutjob has a buddy over here...
Probably just Jay Rockefeller.
I hope this jerkweed is right, but you gotta be a real gambler to put your money on any thing Seymour Hersh writes.
Seymore has sources at the CIA. If it came from Bob Woodward, then it cam from the Pentagon.
Seymour Hersh = treasonous POS. You would think that being Jewish he would appreciate the USA wacking the biggest threat to Israel. He lives and breaths in Manhattan. He lives in a liberal echo chamber
seymour hersch knows such secret stuff because he is a cunning runt.
AKA Seymour crap
As reliable as Debka.
If journalist Seymour Hersh reported this he most likely should be hung for sedition.
If it was anyone but Hersch I’d be encouraged that Bush is doing something. Unfortuntely, Sy is no longer a reporter; he’s a Soros politcal hit man who makes sh*t up.
Sounds good to me!
Huffinton Post link:
Hersh is an anal wart.
senile syd has been saying this since 1/2005:
what’s the saying?? throw enough sheet at the wall and eventually some of it will stick???
Israel is nothing if not thorough.
This is such utter BS. If the United States wanted to bring Iran to it’s knees tomorrow morning, all that needs to be done is to inform each and every other nation on this damn planet that IF they engage in ANY financial transactions with Iran, that THEY will be banned from ANY financial transactions with the United States.
IF other nations grant Iran airline landing privileges at THEIR airports, the United States will revoke all overflight and landing privileges for THOSE nations.
Want to ramp it up some more?
ANY nations that continue to conduct normal diplomatic relations with Iran will no longer have normal diplomatic relations with the United States. We will recall our ambassadors, close our embassies with those nations choosing Iran over the U.S., expell THEIR ambassadors and staff and there will be no diplomatic contact unless and until they ‘see the light’.
We inform the United Nations that they can either expel Iran from that august body, or they (the U.N.) can begin to pack their bags and GTF outta the United States within the next 14 days. We remind the U.N. that the United States and Iran are still in a technical state of war based on their invasion and occupation of our embassy in 1979, and we demand an unconditional surrender and the return of that violated U.S. soil in all of it’s pre-1979 pristine condition.
If the U.N. wishes to remain within the borders of the United States, they’ll play ball and eject Iran and further isolate those Islamofascists.
The United States Treasury freezes any and all assets it can locate belonging to Iran, and states clearly that those assets will remain frozen until Iran surrenders and/or regime change takes place and the mullahs and their little runt are swinging from ropes.
The United States puts Iran on notice that any and all Iranian vessels that come within range of United States Naval vessels will be considered legitimate targets and subject to sinking without warning. We further inform the Iranians that if they attempt to block the Straits of Hormuz through deliberate design or feigned ‘accident’, that it will result in the nuclear decimation of one or more of their cities, to be determined at the time of reprisal.
We are at war with Iran, we have BEEN at war with Iran, and it’s about time we start acting like it, or run up the damn white flag of surrender ourselves and start learning how to say ‘allah akbar’ in Farsi.
‘Preparing the Battlefield’ my ass.
Let the damn battle be joined!
and the 4th time today.
It's interesting that along with the usual "unnamed sources" he actually has a named source: and Iranian general
Too much trouble. I’d rather just bomb them.
Hersh has correctly predicted 27 of the last 4 wars.
I wish it was that simple.
I think we and by extension Israel are in deep **** on this one. We are fairly alone in the conflict and if/when we hit Iran we are going to be hit back. We know that Russia wants to see the USA get taken down a few notches, as does China and most of their satellite states.
The other side has had several years now to analyze our stealth technology and tactics so we cant be absolutely sure anymore of how effective it will be in a conflict on the scale of Iran.
Iran has more options than we do right now.
Why doesn’t CNN just send the report directly to Iran? Better still, why not interview the Supreme Leader, and ask for his reaction to reports that the US is conducting covert operations in his country?
“... journalist Seymour Hersh ...”
I wonder if our admin is using this old fool to make Iran nervous .. or Seymour’s committing treason - AGAIN!!
