Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh is a regular contributor to The New Yorker; his article in this week’s edition, headlined “Shifting Targets,” is about how the Bush administration is redefining the war in Iraq as a strategic battle between the U.S. and Iran.
Hersh exposed the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and covers the administration closely. He’s a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and the recipient of five George Polk Awards, two National Magazine Awards and a dozen other prizes. His most recent book, Chain of Command, is a detailed analysis of events at Abu Ghraib.
