Renowned investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, who said that former Vice President Dick Cheney ran a secret assasination rign outside the purview of Congress, is standing by his claim in light of a recent New York Times report that appears to cover similar ground.Seymour! He's all up in the death squad! You go, girl.
"I said what I said, they can always say what they say," Hersh told Sarlin. "The last time they said 'the government doesn't torture'; this time it's 'the government doesn't assassinate.'"Oh, I hear what you're sayin'.
"Under President Bush’s authority, they’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving. That’s been going on, in the name of all of us."We've gone all mid '80s El Salvador. Saawwweeeeeeet.
