Born at the Crest of the Empire

Sy Hersh says they're waiting in the wings to rat out the Bush admin.

'You cannot believe how many people have told me to call them on 20 January [the date of the next president's inauguration],' he says, with relish. '[They say:] "You wanna know about abuses and violations? Call me then."

Profiles in courage, eh?


  • Remember Bush's legendary demands for unquestioning, cone of silence loyalty?...

    The question I have is, will all that is to spill just be the stuff of beltway gossip rags, or will we see justice? And I mean justice in a very legal and punitive kind.

    Never mind. I know the answer.

  • Yeah, I would guess "a".

  • One other cheerful, and therefore unlikely, explanation: They want to wait 'til 1/20/09 to ensure that Bush doesn't pardon the guilty parties on his way out the door.

  • That's much more noble than my thinking. I figured they were military and career bureaucrats trying to get out from under getting fired.

  • Oh, I definitely think that explanation is more likely. But, boy howdy, will I be looking for Hersh's work in the New Yorker after 1/20.
