Suicidal tsunami

Slate’s Fred Kaplan opines that “Seymour Hersh seems to be on his hottest roll as an investigative reporter in 30 years.” Kaplan credits Hersh’s New Yorker stories on Abu Ghraib as well as Newsweek’s related pieces, envisioning the persistence of the scandal for the indefinite future through possible trials for murder and perjury. He sketches a rerun of Watergate fueled by “extraordinary levels of internecine feuding that have marked this administration for years.”
Kaplan’s piece is “Locked in Abu Ghraib.” The piece is full of conjecture buried in conditional clauses; I’m not sure whether the heading is descriptive of Kaplan’s fantasy life or the president’s political future. Nevertheless, the column is a useful counterpoint to the items we posted on this subject yesterday. (Courtesy of RealClearPolitics.)
