If Seymour Hersh’s “major new article” on the Ghouta chemical weapons attack had acknowledged Israeli intelligence’s “central role in enabling the US’s adamant conviction that Assad’s regime fired chemical weapons at civilians” (Times of Israel, 27/8/2013) instead of asserting that the Obama administration (i.e. American imperialism) “cherry-picked intelligence to justify a strike against Assad,” it’s highly unlikely that the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist would have been given 30 minutes to lay out his case by Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! — the “progressive” news program that has been dubbed Damage Control Now! due to its covering for Israel and its American-based lobby.
