Rude Death Squads
How fucked do we have to be here in America in order to read something by Seymour Hersh, about nefarious plots, illegal fund streams to al-Qaeda associated groups, and the fomenting of an enormous war in the Middle East, and fuckin' John Negroponte comes across looking like the most honorable man? What twisted trip into a sphincter-like rabbit hole do we have to be on in order to be able to put those words together, that the depraved motherfucker who turned a blind eye to (and ensured funding for) Honduran death squads that plagued Central America back in the Reagan era (known these days to liberals as "Jesus, who'd've thought it could get worse?"), who was at the center of Iran-Contra, would sound, in the screwed up context of the players in Hersh's article, like the good guy?
If the man who justified the groups that raped and killed nuns as just part of the fight in the Cold War is worried about the legality of something, it's gotta be a bloodcurdling monstrosity
The Rude One has an important message for you. Read it.

Yeah, what did he have to say about Anna Nicole Smith? Nothing? Feh. Who cares about those "My Lai" and "Abu Ghraib" things he reported on, if he didn't report about Anna Nicole Smith's death, obviously he's a nothing!

Seymour isn't very civil to bring all that up.
