Seymour Hersh on the Arab Spring, “Disaster” US Wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. Part 1 of 2

3 June 2011

Democracy Now! asks veteran investigative reporter Seymour Hersh to assess the popular uprisings sweeping the Middle East and North Africa amidst ongoing U.S. wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. Despite touted gains and an upcoming U.S. military withdrawal deadline in Iraq, Hersh says: “Whatever you’re hearing, Iraq is going bad … It’s sectarian war, and the big question will be whether we pull out or not.” On the uprisings, Hersh says Saudi Arabia—fearing an overthrow of the regional order—is driving the embattled regimes’ attempts to crush the protests.

This video is the sequel.
