CNN interview, links, and comments:

Investigative Reporter Seymour Hersh: US Indirectly Funding Al-Qaeda Linked Sunni Groups in Move to Counter Iran - Wednesday, February 28th, 2007:
Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh joins "Democracy Now!" to talk about his explosive new article in the New Yorker Magazine. Hersh reports that John Negroponte’s decision to resign as National Intelligence Director was made in part because of the Bush administration’s covert actions including the indirect funding of radical Sunni groups - some with ties to al-Qaeda - to counter Shiite groups backed by Iran. Hersh also reports the Pentagon has established a special planning group to plan a bombing attack on Iran and U.S. military and special-operations teams have already crossed the border into Iran in pursuit of Iranian operatives.

P.S.: According to Manar TV and Michel Samaha, only 60% of Seymour Hersch's article was published with the rest censored while the initial date of publication was to be in January.
