Seymour Hersh knows what he's talking about. He's the award winning reporter who first reported the My Lai massacre to the American people back in the 1960s, after an official US Army coverup in which Colin Powell, then a young staff officer, played a key role. Hundreds of Vietnamese civilians, mostly women and children were rounded up by a US Army unit in the course of a normal day's operation, shot and dumped into ditches. In Afghanistan today, where President Obama claims the US is fighting a "good" and "necessary" war today, the veteran reporter says, things are not that much different.
