Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh contends the 2011 U.S. Navy Seals raid that resulted in the killing of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden is “one big lie.” “Not one word of it is true,” Hersh told The Guardian newspaper in an interview meant to drum up publicity for his new book about national security. “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie,” the 76-year-old Hersh told The Guardian. The book, still untitled, will reportedly include a chapter on the May 2011 raid by U.S. forces on Bin Laden’s Abbottabad, Pakistan compound — an account Hersh claims hasn’t been appropriately looked into by journalists. “The Pakistanis put out a report, don’t get me going on it. Let’s put it this way, it was done with considerable American input. It’s a b——t report,” he said. The book will also discuss Hersh’s view that the U.S. media hasn’t committed enough resources to investigative journalism. Hersh tells The Guardian that the ‘pathetic’ U.S. media ‘is afraid to pick on this guy (President Obama).’ “It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious,” Hersh said of the American media. “They are afraid to pick on this guy (Obama).” “It used to be when you were in a situation when something very dramatic happened, the president and the minions around the president had control of the narrative, you would pretty much know they would do the best they could to tell the story straight,” he said. “Now that doesn’t happen anymore. Now they take advantage of something like that and they work out how to re-elect the president.” Source
