Hersh: Killing Prisoners

by
Abby Zimet

Seymour Hersh, the longtime New Yorker journalist who broke the Abu
Ghraib and My Lai stories, says U.S. soldiers are now executing prisoners in Afghanistan in the
name of expediency, and the Obama administration is "looking the other
way." Speaking at a journalism conference, Hersh called the reports of
battlefield executions "one of the great tragedies of my country."

"If
they can't prove they're Taliban, bam." - Seymour Hersh
