I was listening to a replay of Hugh Hewitt this afternoon and he mentioned this previous Hersh discussion on Democracy Now! from May 11, 2005:
In one case — after I did Abu Ghraib, I got a bunch of digital pictures emailed me, and – was a lot of work on it, and I decided, well, we can talk about it later. You never know why you do things. You have some general rules, but in this case, a bunch of kids were going along in three vehicles. One of them got blown up. The other two units — soldiers ran out, saw some people running, opened up fire. It was a bunch of boys playing soccer. And in the digital videos you see everybody standing around, they pull the bodies together. This is last summer. They pull the bodies together. You see the body parts, the legs and boots of the Americans pulling bodies together. Young kids, I don’t know how old, 13, 15, I guess. And then you see soldiers dropping R.P.G.’s, which are rocket-launched grenades around them. And then they’re called in as an insurgent kill. It’s a kill of, you know, would-be insurgents or resistance and it goes into the computers, and I’m sure it’s briefed. Everybody remembers how My Lai was briefed as a great victory, “128 Vietcong killed.” And so you have that pattern again. You know, ask me why I didn’t do this story. Because I didn’t think the kids did murder. I think it was another day in the war. And even to write about it in a professional way would name names and all that.

Sounds like Hersh looking for another My Lai.

Did you notice that he said, "I didn’t think the kids did murder"?

Now, 1 1/2 years later he’s telling the story as an example of how our current military is more murderous than ever before.

Also, the event allegedly took place 2 1/2 years ago. We have yet to see the evidence that is supposed to be in Hersh’s possession ("I got a bunch of digital pictures emailed me").
