The Trifecta

From the NYT article "The Breaking Point" by Peter Maas, something I did not know as told by Matthew Simmons:
He certainly has not lost sight of the rule that people who shout ''the end is nigh'' do not tend to be favorably reviewed by historians, let alone by their peers. He notes in his book that way back in 1979, The New York Times published an investigative story by Seymour Hersh under the headline ''Saudi Oil Capacity Questioned.''
So this means that Hersh uncovered My Lai and Abu Ghraib, with an aprocyphal latent discovery sandwiched in between. In the greater scheme of things, Hersh getting it wrong by a quarter of century makes little difference considering it took millions of years to populate Ghawar.

I'm a VietNam Vet that's trying to put a site together about Agent Orange and other wicked things that happened there and still try to keep it from being Gross. I'm new at this and the site shows it. Some of the words like heart problems and/orheart problems turn people away. When I saw your Blog, I thought at least you might not erase it. You seemed to have put some thought into yours. Look at it and make up your mind if you'll at least let it stay on yours. ---Jack---
