Cheney’s Assassination Squads

Wow. Just — wow.

Sy Hersh let something big slip, and we have Eric Black to thank for catching it.

One Response to “Cheney’s Assassination Squads”

    The main thing that’s new is that they’ve been using the US military, rather than exclusively the CIA for assassinations.

    And the more interesting angle, as I see it, is Hersh’s statement that the CIA is involved in targeting Americans as enemies of the state. Usually that’s been left to the FBI. From a political standpoint, the use of the CIA against Americans is more likely to cause popular reaction against it than assassinations of Afghans. There is, after all, no clear line between “a night raid” and a “a targeted assassination at night.” But there is a clear line between the US and Canada.
