He's one of the most prominent investigative reporters in the United States and this week he again outrages the White House and the Pentagon. Seymour Hersh is convinced that President Bush wants to attack Iran before he leaves office. In his New Yorker piece this week, "America's interest in Israel's war," he quotes a "former senior intelligence official" talking about how Vice President Cheney's office viewed the Israeli attack on Lebanon. Warren Olney talks with Hersh about whether the US saw the recent battle as a kind of preview of an attack on Iran.
