I was somewhat taken aback by Louis Proyect's character assassination of Seymour Hersh.
In fact, I had to read it a couple of times just to make sure I wasn't missing a level of irony or two, but no, Proyect seems to be serious.
Proyect styles himself "the unrepentant Marxist." Fair enough, I suppose, but it's a strange sort of Marxism that turns to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal for its truths.
What we know for sure is that regime change in Syria is something that has been on the agenda of The Empire for many years. Many of the details of how that is playing out have been obscured by the fog of war.
I am reasonably confident that the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have spread far more fog than Seymour Hersh.
And as for senility, Proyect's not that far behind Hersh in that trip down the Alzheimer highway.
