Wars generally involve lies.
They start with them and
They end with them.
To send young people to die for older people's benefit requires getting the young to believe these lies. It was ever thus.
We know this. We've read history. We've seen the films. WE know the truth.
But if we are caught up in a hugely well orchestrated propaganda war, for crucial geopolitical ends, would we spot when it is that our minds are being played with?
One Pulitzer Prize winning journalist suggests that that is exactly what is occurring.
We simply know the Russians hacked the US election.
All the newspapers say so. All the talking heads on the TV newscasts say so. The friend in the bar says so. The post on Facebook says so. So it must be true.
But if you ask where is the actual evidence that you have seen linking Russia to the DNC hack, and Clinton emails, you will struggle to find one, single piece that is not "an unattributed briefing". By the way, unattributed briefings are also called 'leaks'. Have you noticed there is no outcry as to who exactly has leaked this CIA or FBI information?
There is a tidal wave of news, or stories offered by newsreaders and commentators, asserting the self-evident truth that Russia is behind the hacks and that Putin orchestrated them. Only a few independent minded commentators are suggesting this narrative may be just as flawed as the certainties about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. Anyone questioning that story in 2003 was considered foolish at best and in America, quickly branded as unpatriotic.
Well now even Colin Powell admits what he said at the UN was completely mistaken.
there is now virtually total acceptance now by CNN, the BBC, ITV, MSNBC and so on, that Russia is behind the hacks (if there were hacks). It is taken as a given.
This is extremely dangerous, because once again there really is no evidence beyond assertions by the Intelligence Agencies.
The FBI, at any time, could have seized the DNC computers and analysed them, following the trail of a hack, if there was one. They have not. Why?

His most recent foray into controversy was to suggest that Osama Bin Laden was not killed by Navy Seals in Pakistan, as he was already dead. As Wikileaks summarises:
In September 2013, during an interview with The Guardian, Hersh commented that the 2011 raid that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden was "one big lie, not one word of it is true".
Sy Hersh and the Russian Hack that never was
Here are links to three accounts, including audio testimony, that suggest the whole Russia narrative is simply a CIA operation. If this is true (and it will be hard to prove absolutely) this has huge implications for the Media in the USA and world-wide, simply not doing their job and pushing a narrative for certain political forces.
As the current propaganda war holds the possibility of initiating WW3, it is important to get clarity on this part of what is currently being presented as truth. Sleepwalking into another huge war is hardly a morally defensible position.

Hersh has been proved right in the past. Perhaps we should at least hold the possibility, given his deep connections with the grey world of spying, that he is right this time.
