Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist Says Osama Bin Laden Narrative is “One Big Lie, Not One word of it is True”

Freedom Outpost


Earlier this week The D.C. Clothesline featured an article titled Pentagon Orders Purge of Osama Bin Laden’s Death Files from Data  Bank by Professor Michel Chossudovsky of Global Research. Running articles  like that elicit the typical and predictable responses. A lot of people  question  the Osama Bin Laden narrative for many reasons, but some just accuse  us of  tabloid news and brush off The D.C.

Seymour Hersh won the Pulitzer Prize in 1970 for exposing the My Lai  Massacre. He is a 5-time winner of the prestigious Polk Award (1969, 1973,  1974,  1981, 2004). He also earned the George Orwell Award in 2004. In 2004 he  exposed  the mistreatment of prisoners of war by the U.S. Military at Abu Graib  prison.

This man has credentials. Perhaps his biggest credential is his obvious  willingness to go after democrats or republicans. He was once described by the Republican party as “the closest thing American  journalism has to a terrorist.”

So if this 7-time winner of major awards in the field of journalism, who has  shown no mercy to republicans in the past, shines light on the Bin Laden  narrative, perhaps we should listen.
