Timeline of Seymour Hersh Posts Corroborating Russian Narrative

As I clear out some old material I researched but never got around to posting today, I’d like to share my in-progress bibliography on Seymour Hersh. His background seems to match with Russian and Syrian information warfare narratives over time. Let’s be clear that the Syrian ‘false flag’ chemical weapons material in particular is connected to 9/11 era conspiracy networks which stretch back to the Cold War era. Hersh fits this same MO of ‘antifascist Russian dupe‘ reporter – think of him perhaps like a modern IF Stone
