ISIS clearly did not materialize spontaneously within Iraq, it has clearly redeployed from its NATO-sponsored destruction of Syria to northern Iraq, perhaps in an attempt to justify a NATO incursion and the creation of a buffer zone straddling Syrian, Iraqi, and even possibly Iranian territory with the goal of targeting Iran directly with ISIS.

It wasn't enough for the West to support the worst of islamic radicals to overthrow countries.....now they've got their own Nazis in Ukraine.....slitting people's throats, burning them alive etc.....and then you got a lot of idiots supporting fat Merkel and smiling Obama.....and thinking Putin is the big bad guy.
Don't even get him started on the New York Times which, he says, spends "so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would" – or the death of Osama bin Laden. "Nothing's been done about that story, it's one big lie, not one word of it is true," he says of the dramatic US Navy Seals raid in 2011....
"I would close down the news bureaus of the networks and let's start all over, tabula rasa. The majors, NBCs, ABCs, they won't like this – just do something different, do something that gets people mad at you, that's what we're supposed to be doing," he says.
Hersh is currently on a break from reporting, working on a book which undoubtedly will make for uncomfortable reading for both Bush and Obama.
"The republic's in trouble, we lie about everything, lying has become the staple." And he implores journalists to do something about it.

And now, less than a day after the BuzzFeed and Rolling Stone reporter
was killed in a fiery car crash, conspiracy theorists are speculating
that there is more than meets the eye over Hasting's demise.
Twitter, Facebook, and sharing site Reddit were abuzz Wednesday, with
some users commenting that it was suspicious that Hastings, who famously
brought down U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal in a Rolling Stone cover
story, died while in the middle of covering several hot-button topics
like monitoring by the National Security Agency and the CIA.
In a guest editorial for Spiegel Online on
Tuesday, Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger said
reports that the United States could access and track virtually all
forms of Internet communication were "deeply disconcerting" and
potentially dangerous. "The more a society monitors, controls and observes its citizens, the less free it is," she said.
suspicion of excessive surveillance of communication is so alarming
that it cannot be ignored. For that reason, openness and clarification
by the U.S. administration itself is paramount at this point. All facts
must be put on the table."
Ferber, a member of Merkel's Bavarian sister party who sits in the

They gathered and marched. Police chased them with pepper spray and
tear gas and drove their tanks over people who offered the police food
in return. Two young people were run over by the tanks and were killed.
Another young woman, a friend of mine, was hit in the head by one of the
incoming tear gas canisters. The police were shooting them straight
into the crowd. After a three hour operation she is still in Intensive
Care Unit and in very critical condition. As I write this we don’t know
if she is going to make it. This blog is dedicated to her. These people are my friends. They are my students, my relatives. They
have no «hidden agenda» as the state likes to say. Their agenda is out
there. It is very clear. The whole country is being sold to corporations
by the government, for the construction of malls, luxury condominiums,
freeways, dams and nuclear plants. The government is looking for (and
creating when necessary) any excuse to attack Syria against its people’s
will. On top of all that, the government control over its people’s personal
lives has become unbearable as of late. The state, under its
conservative agenda passed many laws and regulations concerning
abortion, cesarean birth, sale and use of alcohol and even the color of
lipstick worn by the airline stewardesses. People who are marching to the center of Istanbul are demanding their
right to live freely and receive justice, protection and respect from
the State. They demand to be involved in the decision-making processes
about the city they live in.
