The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh has reportedly claimed that the US raid that killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2011 is ‘one big lie’.
Hersh, who is currently writing a book on national security, said that whatever the US media reported about the Abbottabad raid and bin Laden’s killing has no truth in it.
According to the New York Post, one chapter in Hersh’s book will be on the raid by US Navy Seals at bin Laden’s Abottabad compound in Pakistan.
Hersh has won the Pulitzer for his reporting on the My Lai massacre in Vietnam.
The journalist even claimed that the recently issued by the Pakistani government on life inside bin Laden’s compound was done with considerable American input and is a ‘bullsh*t report’.
