Seymour Hersh claims on CNN Late Edition US funding al-Qaeda affiliates in Lebanon

February 25th, 2007, 8:08 pm

You may be aware of Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh's story in this week's New Yorker.Today on CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, Hersh amplified on one sentence in that article with a claim he desribed as "explosive".Seymour Hersh stated that a central reason John Negroponte resigned as national intelligence director was because he vigourously objected to Bush and his Saudi allies funneling large sums of money to at least three groups known to be affiliated with al-Qaeda in Lebanon as a counterweight to Hezbollah.The interview with Hersh is near the end of the program. Extraordinary material.Hersh stated we should be arresting these Al-Qaeda affiliates, not flooding them with cash.Matt

Hersh said the administration has decided to pressure Shiites -- whether they be Iranians or Hezbollah, whose leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has described the situation as a civil war."As far as he is concerned, we are interested in recreating what is happening in Iraq in Lebanon, that is Sunni versus Shia," Hersh said.Some of the money, he said, has made its way to three Sunni jihadist groups in Lebanon that are connected to al Qaeda and opposed to Hezbollah, the Shiite militia that sparked a month-long war with Israel last summer.Hersh said his sources told him that much of the money used to fund the effort has come from Iraq, "where there is all kinds of piles of loose money, pools of cash that could be used for covert operations." He called for a congressional investigation of those allegations."We are simply in a situation where this president is really taking his notion of executive privilege to the absolute limit here, running covert operations, using money that was not authorized by Congress, supporting groups indirectly that are involved with the same people that did 9/11, and we should be arresting these people rather than looking the other way," he said.U.S. planning Iran bombs
