Introduction Summary

A young wire reporter named Seymour M. Hersh had his first major story in November, 1969, with an article about a U.S. Army killing spree in Vietnam that came to be known as the My Lai Massacre. As an investigative reporter, he later wrote stories about C.I.A. spying, Henry Kissinger, U.S. foreign coups, and the bombing of Cambodia. He has written investigative stories for The New Yorker since the early 1990s. He has also been highly critical of the U.S. government's activities in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks. Although scornful of military policy, Hersh has great affection for the actual troops on the front line.
