Seymour Hersh Interview With Democracy Now
There's an interesting interview on Democracy Now with Seymour Hersh which adds some flesh to some of the points about the recent violence in Lebanon that Tom alluded to earlier. Seymour Hersh is claiming that America, along with the Lebanese government led by Fouad Siniora has indirectly backed the Islamist Militant group Fatah al-Islam. These are claims he first made in March in an article in the New Yorker called The Redirection. He also debunks the claims made that Fatah al-Islam is backed by Syria or tied to al-Qaeda. Here's a quick excerpt:
So, according to Sy Hersh the current episodes of violence are "unintended consequences". It's worth reading or watching the whole interview. For up-to-date and detailed information on what is happening, I recommend Tears For Lebanon.
