Hersh calls military officials crusaders in speech at SFS-Q
“I don’t know how to describe Obama, as somebody who’s now in office for two years,” Hersh said. “Just when we needed an angry black man, we didn’t get one.”
After describing the Bush-Cheney years as a time when “eight or nine neoconservative whackos, if you will, overthrew the American government,” he continued to criticize the various abuses perpetrated by the U.S. during the War on Terror.
Hersh then went on to accuse several high-ranking members of the armed forces of being Crusaders.
Hersh said that General Stanley McChrystal and Admiral Bill McRaven are members or supporters of the Knights of Malta, as well as Opus Dei.
They “see what they are doing … [as] a crusade, literally. They see themselves as protectors of the Christians,” Hersh claimed.
Hersh accused Obama of turning over the war efforts to those who were perpetrating it and criticized further actions in Afghanistan.
