ERIC BLACK INK Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh describes 'executive assassination ring' By Eric Black | Published Wed, Mar 11 2009 11:17 am

REUTERS/Fadi Al-Assaad Journalist Seymour Hersh speaking in Doha at an Al Jazeera forum on the media in 2007.

At a “Great Conversations” event (MP3) at the University of Minnesota last night, legendary investigative reporter Seymour Hersh may have made a little more news than he intended by talking about new alleged instances of domestic spying by the CIA, and about an ongoing covert military operation that he called an “executive assassination ring.”

Just heard Rush--a caller who professed to be a retired Navy Seal, said special Navy teams were designated assault teams and could only be ordered on a mission by the President or the National Security head.He also said he believed Obama dithered until someone said "You HAVE to do this" --otherwise, it could leak late in the campaign that he had bin Laden and failed to act. I can believe that.

However, pertaining to Hersh--his calling the team that went in "assaulters" went further than calling them by their designation. He did it in a derogatory manner. If he had not meant it in a bad way, he would have simply said the seal team or - correctly - the Navy assault team. He and libs and 99 % Dems are pitiful anymore, and are to be despised and NEVER NEVER believed on face value.

Do you read magazines? If so, Google Hersh for his piece this week about obama and the syrian gas attacks, that’s obama the democrat.

“The major newspapers joined the [Bush] team,” Hersh said. Top editors passed the message to investigative reporters not to “pick holes” in what Bush was doing. Violations of the Bill of Rights happened in the plain sight of the public. It was not only tolerated, but Bush was re-elected.

This one claim seems to pretty much disqualify Hersh's reliability and accuracy.
