Ten Bombshell Revelations From Seymour Hersh's New Autobiography

Among the more interesting revelations to surface as legendary investigative journalist Seymour Hersh continues a book tour and gives interviews discussing his newly published autobiography, Reporter: A Memoir, is that he never set out to write it at all, but was actually deeply engaged in writing a massive exposé of Dick Cheney a project he decided couldn't ultimately be published in the current climate of aggressive persecution of whistleblowers which became especially intense during the Obama years.

Hersh has pointed out he worries his sources risk exposure while taking on the Cheney book, which ultimately resulted in the famed reporter opting to write an in-depth account of his storied career instead — itself full of previously hidden details connected with major historical events and state secrets

In a recent wide-ranging interview with the UK Independent, Hersh is finally asked to discuss in-depth some of the controversial investigative stories he's written on Syria, Russia-US intelligence sharing, and the Osama bin Laden death narrativewhich have gotten the Pulitzer Prize winner and five-time Polk Award recipient essentially blacklisted from his regular publication, The New Yorker magazine, for which he broke stories of monumental importance for decades.

Though few would disagree that Hersh "has single-handedly broken more stories of genuine world-historical significance than any reporter alive (or dead, perhaps)" — as The Nation put it — the man who exposed shocking cover-ups like the My Lai Massacre, the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, and the truth behind the downing of Korean Air Flight 007, has lately been shunned and even attacked by the American mainstream media especially over his controversial coverage of Syria and the bin Laden raid in 2011.

But merely a few of the many hit pieces written on this front include The Washington Post's "Sy Hersh, journalism giant: Why some who worshiped him no longer do," and elsewhere "Whatever happened to Seymour Hersh?" or "Sy Hersh's Chemical Misfire" in Foreign Policy — the latter which was written, it should be noted, by a UK blogger who conducts chemical weapons "investigations" via YouTube and Google Maps (and this is not an exaggeration). 

The Post story begins by acknowledging, "But Sy Hersh now has a problem: He thinks 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue lied about the death of Osama bin Laden, and it seems nearly everyone is mad at him for saying so" — before proceeding to take a sledgehammer to Hersh's findings while painting him as some kind of conspiracy theorist (Hersh published the bin Laden story for the London Review of Books after his usual New Yorker rejected it). 

Seymour Hersh broke the story of CIA's illegal domestic operations with a front page story in the New York Times on December 22, 1974.

However, the mainstream pundits piling on against his reporting of late ignore the clearly establish historical pattern when it comes to Hersh: nearly all of the biggest stories of his career were initially met with incredulity and severe push back from both government officials and even his fellow journalists, and yet he's managed to emerge proven right and ultimately vindicated time and again. 

* * *

Here are ten bombshell revelations and fascinating new details to lately come out of both Sy Hersh's new book, Reporter, as well as interviews he's given since publication...

1) On a leaked Bush-era intelligence memo outlining the neocon plan to remake the Middle East

(Note: though previously alluded to only anecdotally by General Wesley Clark in his memoir and in a 2007 speech, the below passage from Seymour Hersh is to our knowledge the first time this highly classified memo has been quoted. Hersh's account appears to corroborate now retired Gen. Clark's assertion that days after 9/11 a classified memo outlining plans to foster regime change in "7 countries in 5 years" was being circulated among intelligence officials.)

From Reporter: A Memoir pg. 306 — A few months after the invasion of Iraq, during an interview overseas with a general who was director of a foreign intelligence service, I was provided with a copy of a Republican neocon plan for American dominance in the Middle East. The general was an American ally, but one who was very rattled by the Bush/Cheney aggression. I was told that the document leaked to me initially had been obtained by someone in the local CIA station. There was reason to be rattled: The document declared that the war to reshape the Middle East had to begin "with the assault on Iraq. The fundamental reason for this... is that the war will start making the U.S. the hegemon of the Middle East. The correlative reason is to make the region feel in its bones, as it were, the seriousness of American intent and determination." Victory in Iraq would lead to an ultimatum to Damascus, the "defanging" of Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, and Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization, and other anti-Israeli groups. America's enemies must understand that "they are fighting for their life: Pax Americana is on its way, which implies their annihilation." I and the foreign general agreed that America's neocons were a menace to civilization.

* * *

2) On early regime change plans in Syria

From Reporter: A Memoir pages 306-307 — Donald Rumsfeld was also infected with neocon fantasy. Turkey had refused to permit America's Fourth Division to join the attack of Iraq from its territory, and the division, with its twenty-five thousand men and women, did not arrive in force inside Iraq until mid-April, when the initial fighting was essentially over. I learned then that Rumsfeld had asked the American military command in Stuttgart, Germany, which had responsibility for monitoring Europe, including Syria and Lebanon, to begin drawing up an operational plan for an invasion of Syria. A young general assigned to the task refused to do so, thereby winning applause from my friends on the inside and risking his career. The plan was seen by those I knew as especially bizarre because Bashar Assad, the ruler of secular Syria, had responded to 9/11 by sharing with the CIA hundreds of his country's most sensitive intelligence files on the Muslim Brotherhood in Hamburg, where much of the planning for 9/11 was carried out... Rumsfeld eventually came to his senses and back down, I was told...

3) On the Neocon deep state which seized power after 9/11

From Reporter: A Memoir pages 305-306 — I began to comprehend that eight or nine neoconservatives who were political outsiders in the Clinton years had essentially overthrown the government of the United States — with ease. It was stunning to realize how fragile our Constitution was. The intellectual leaders of that group — Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, and Richard Perle — had not hidden their ideology and their belief in the power of the executive but depicted themselves in public with a great calmness and a self-assurance that masked their radicalism. I had spent many hours after 9/11 in conversations with Perle that, luckily for me, helped me understand what was coming. (Perle and I had been chatting about policy since the early 1980s, but he broke off relations in 1993 over an article I did for The New Yorker linking him, a fervent supporter of Israel, to a series of meetings with Saudi businessmen in an attempt to land a multibillion-dollar contract from Saudi Arabia. Perle responded by publicly threatening to sue me and characterizing me as a newspaper terrorist. He did not sue. 

Meanwhile, Cheney had emerged as a leader of the neocon pack. From 9/11 on he did all he could to undermine congressional oversight. I learned a great deal from the inside about his primacy in the White House, but once again I was limited in what I would write for fear of betraying my sources...

I came to understand that Cheney's goal was to run his most important military and intelligence operations with as little congressional knowledge, and interference, as possible. I was fascinating and important to learn what I did about Cheney's constant accumulation of power and authority as vice president, but it was impossible to even begin to verify the information without running the risk that Cheney would learn of my questioning and have a good idea from whom I was getting the information.

4) On Russian meddling in the US election

From the recent Independent interview based on his autobiography — Hersh has vociferously strong opinions on the subject and smells a rat. He states that there is “a great deal of animosity towards Russia. All of that stuff about Russia hacking the election appears to be preposterous.” He has been researching the subject but is not ready to go public… yet.

Hersh quips that the last time he heard the US defense establishment have high confidence, it was regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. He points out that the NSA only has moderate confidence in Russian hacking. It is a point that has been made before; there has been no national intelligence estimate in which all 17 US intelligence agencies would have to sign off. “When the intel community wants to say something they say it… High confidence effectively means that they don’t know.”

5) On the Novichok poisoning 

From the recent Independent interview — Hersh is also on the record as stating that the official version of the Skripal poisoning does not stand up to scrutiny. He tells me: “The story of novichok poisoning has not held up very well. He [Skripal] was most likely talking to British intelligence services about Russian organised crime.” The unfortunate turn of events with the contamination of other victims is suggestive, according to Hersh, of organised crime elements rather than state-sponsored actions –though this files in the face of the UK government's position.

Hersh modestly points out that these are just his opinions. Opinions or not, he is scathing on Obama – “a trimmer … articulate [but] … far from a radical … a middleman”. During his Goldsmiths talk, he remarks that liberal critics underestimate Trump at their peril.

He ends the Goldsmiths talk with an anecdote about having lunch with his sources in the wake of 9/11. He vents his anger at the agencies for not sharing information. One of his CIA sources fires back: “Sy you still don’t get it after all these years – the FBI catches bank robbers, the CIA robs banks.” It is a delicious, if cryptic aphorism.

* * *

6) On the Bush-era 'Redirection' policy of arming Sunni radicals to counter Shia Iran, which in a 2007 New Yorker article Hersh accurately predicted would set off war in Syria

From the Independent interview: [Hersh] tells me it is “amazing how many times that story has been reprinted”. I ask about his argument that US policy was designed to neutralize the Shia sphere extending from Iran to Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon and hence redraw the Sykes-Picot boundaries for the 21st century.

He goes on to say that Bush and Cheney “had it in for Iran”, although he denies the idea that Iran was heavily involved in Iraq: “They were providing intel, collecting intel … The US did many cross-border hunts to kill ops [with] much more aggression than Iran”...

He believes that the Trump administration has no memory of this approach. I’m sure though that the military-industrial complex has a longer memory...

I press him on the RAND and Stratfor reports including one authored by Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz in which they envisage deliberate ethno-sectarian partitioning of Iraq. Hersh ruefully states that: “The day after 9/11 we should have gone to Russia. We did the one thing that George Kennan warned us never to do – to expand NATO too far.”

* * *

7) On the official 9/11 narrative

From the Independent interview: We end up ruminating about 9/11, perhaps because it is another narrative ripe for deconstruction by sceptics. Polling shows that a significant proportion of the American public believes there is more to the truth. These doubts have been reinforced by the declassification of the suppressed 28 pages of the 9/11 commission report last year undermining the version that a group of terrorists acting independently managed to pull off the attacks. The implication is that they may well have been state-sponsored with the Saudis potentially involved. 

Hersh tells me: “I don’t necessarily buy the story that Bin Laden was responsible for 9/11. We really don’t have an ending to the story. I’ve known people in the [intelligence] community. We don’t know anything empirical about who did what”. He continues: “The guy was living in a cave. He really didn’t know much English. He was pretty bright and he had a lot of hatred for the US. We respond by attacking the Taliban. Eighteen years later… How’s it going guys?”

8) On the media and the morality of the powerful

From a recent The Intercept interview and book review  If Hersh were a superhero, this would be his origin story. Two hundred and seventy-four pages after the Chicago anecdote, he describes his coverage of a massive slaughter of Iraqi troops and civilians by the U.S. in 1991 after a ceasefire had ended the Persian Gulf War. America’s indifference to this massacre was, Hersh writes, “a reminder of the Vietnam War’s MGR, for Mere Gook Rule: If it’s a murdered or raped gook, there is no crime.” It was also, he adds, a reminder of something else: “I had learned a domestic version of that rule decades earlier” in Chicago.

“Reporter” demonstrates that Hersh has derived three simple lessons from that rule:

  1. The powerful prey mercilessly upon the powerless, up to and including mass murder.
  2. The powerful lie constantly about their predations.
  3. The natural instinct of the media is to let the powerful get away with it.

* * *

9) On the time President Lyndon B. Johnson expressed his displeasure to a reporter over a Vietnam piece by defecating on the ground in front of him

From Reporter: A Memoir pages 201-202 — Tom [Wicker] got into the car and the two of them sped off down a dusty dirt road. No words were spoken. After a moment or two, Johnson once again slammed on the brakes, wheeling to a halt near a stand of trees. Leaving the motor running, he climbed out, walked a few dozen feet toward the trees, stopped, pulled down his pants, and defecated, in full view. The President wiped himself with leaves and grass, pulled up his pants, climbed into the car, turned in around, and sped back to the press gathering. Once there, again the brakes were slammed on, and Tom was motioned out. All of this was done without a word being spoken.

..."I knew then," Tom told me, "that the son of a bitch was never going to end the war."

10) On Sy's "most troublesome article" for which his own family received death threats

From Reporter: A Memoir pages 263-264 — The most troublesome article I did, as someone not on the staff of the newspaper, came in June 1986 and dealt with American signals intelligence showing that General Manuel Antonio Noriega, the dictator who ran Panama, had authorized the assassination of a popular political opponent. At the time, Noriega was actively involved in supplying the Reagan administration with what was said to be intelligence on the spread of communism in Central America. Noriega also permitted American military and intelligence units to operate with impunity, in secret, from bases in Panama, and the Americans, in return, looked the other way while the general dealt openly in drugs and arms. The story was published just as Noriega was giving a speech at Harvard University and created embarrassment for him, and for Harvard, along with a very disturbing telephone threat at home, directed not at me but at my family.

Seymour Hersh is a Zionist shill and a phony. He cherry picks political events “exposing” aspects which are known or likely to be known anyway always defecting from Zionist involvement.  He was not on the forefront of any 9/11 revelations to putting the lie to the official government version but rather published his views when that version had already crumbled and in doing so he deliberately deflected from any Israeli or Zionist involvement and instead implicated the US government with Arab terrorists.

“I don’t necessarily buy the story that Bin Laden was responsible for 9/11. We really don’t have an ending to the story. I’ve known people in the [intelligence] community. We don’t know anything empirical about who did what”. (Typical Limited Hangout response.)

 

Mossad. Israel.

 

It is beyond the slightest shadow of doubt that Israeli agents had foreknowledge of the 911 attacks, and, together with scientific forensic proof of controlled demolitions of WTC 1, 2 and 7.   

 

The very first people arrested on suspicion of involvement in the 9/11 attacks turned out to be five Israeli Jews: Sivan Kurzberg, Paul Kurzberg (Sivan's brother), Oded Ellner, Yaron Shmuel and Omer Marmari. Their white Urban Moving Systems van was stopped and they were arrested within hours of the attacks, on the afternoon of 9/11/01. Sivan Kurzberg, Ellner and Shmuel had been observed by several eyewitnesses at the rear parking lot of the Doric apartment complex in Union City, New Jersey. They were seen atop the van with cameras, high-fiving, smiling, joking with cries of joy and mockery, hugging each other, and taking photographs and video of the Twin Towers within a few minutes of the first plane impact.

 

Marc Perelman of New York's Jewish weekly The Forward reported on March 15, 2002 that the FBI had concluded that at least two of the Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, and their employer Urban Moving Systems Incorporated was a suspected intelligence front. On September 14, 2001, Urban's owner Dominick Suter fled the U.S. for Israel. Perelman also tells on video of how he was able to confirm that, according to the FBI, two of the five Israelis were "Mossad agents". Christopher Ketcham says the transcripts of the Carl Cameron report were later removed from the Fox News website following pressure from Abe Foxman of the ADL, and replaced with the rather Orwellian message: "This story no longer exists".

 

When arrested, the Israelis - dubbed the "High-Fivers" by the FBI - were found to have airline tickets with immediate travel dates for destinations world-wide, and tie-ins to 9/11. Dual US-Israeli citizen Michael Chertoff, who co-authored the USA Patriot Act" and headed the Justice Department's Criminal Division in the aftermath of 9/11, is a prime suspect for pulling strings to get the Israelis released and sent home.

Whomever did it used known and reliable assets from previous operations. Check out Global Options, the GO Team, whose principles included alums from the Bush 41/Ollie North guns for drugs operation, i.e. The Livingstons, Robert Owen, and others. Global Options, if not overtly involved, had its capabilities hijacked to facilitate the 911 operation from architectural engineers to passports for the Saudis who were involved.

Dude! Cheney and the US government pulled this shit off. Why are you omitting facts about the Saudis getting a free pass to leave the US, during a government enforced no fly zone. Thats a big period!

 

Great article, would love to dissect it, however, the stupid level of the above commentators. Leaves no room for actual discussion!

to me, building collapses are purposeful redirection. focus on the planes. how did those planes navigate across the country? by pilots? were the pilots at the controls? were they talking to the towers? if so, for how long? until impact? or, were the hijackers at the controls? hijackers that could barely fly? notably, there are no traffic lights, road signs, etc. at 30k feet. so, ask yourself, how those planes gathered their whereabouts and were able to fly into targets hundreds of miles below, hundreds of miles away. by amateur hijacker pilots? doubtful. moreover, the plane "targets" tracked by FAA/NORAD traveled in excess of the maximum speeds achievable by the equipment allegedly assigned to the 9/11 flights. that is empirical evidence that conflicts with the official narrative. yet, that's never been explained. you can't have an ATC tracking a target at 515 mph heading northeast and then learn that a 757 can't achieve that mph--even at cruising altitude. the Mossad didn't control NORAD or the FAA on 9/11. admittedly, if the Mossad hacked the codes of the planes, they could have controlled the planes but....look, it's been 17 years. where are the air traffic controllers that handed off those planes from sector to sector? where are the airline folks who handled those planes? isn't it time to come forward with what you know to be true? the Mossad probably played a role. but ask yourself who could control NORAD. ask yourself who could squash FBI files/investigations/FOIA requests. and then you will get your answer. rotten from the inside.

The planes, the buildings, the molten bathtub, the gold, the abandonment of WTC7 before the event (remember there was an offsite Emergency Response Center already pre-positioned and equipped as part of a "drill"), the passports (especially the one surviving the conflagration intact), and good ol' Silverstein telling a Jewish organization about how the planning for the new WTC7 was in full swing in 2000, and - lo and behold - the American taxpayer financed it with Liberty Bonds after he received his massive payout for the freshly overinsured Chinese bound rubble.

We live in a monolithically controlled empire system with a veneer of what people think is freedom, but is actually freedumb.

Let's expose the psy (Sy?) operation and provide more accurate context...

"The true equation is 'democracy' = government by world financiers...The main mark of modern governments is that we do not know who governs, de facto any more than de jure. We see the politician and not his backer; still less the backer of the backer; or what is most important of all, the banker of the backer. Enthroned above all, in a manner without parallel in all past, is the veiled prophet of finance, swaying all men living by a sort of magic, and delivering oracles in a language not understanded [sic] of the people."
~J.R.R. Tolkien, Candour Magazine, 13 July 1956, p. 12

1. Blame the Middle East on Bush...  no, the Money Power Monopolists, who finance the entire Western World, are installing debt-based monetary systems across the globe in order to ultimately asset strip and enslave the planet.  It so happens that the Middle East had/has the most governments independently aligned from the BIS debt-based monetary enslavement system.

If it was just neo-con, then the "liberals" would undo the work of their "competition."  Instead, THEY BUILD UPON IT IN ORDER TO SERVE THEIR MONEY POWER MONOPOLIST FINANCIERS.

2. Syria doesn't have a debt-based money BIS central bank.  And it was Hellary and Obama that got the Libya/Syria party started.  BTW, Libya didn't have a debt-based money central bank until after al Qaeda was used to take over the country.  Now they sell mostly black people (children, too) in public slave auctions...  look it up.

3. The Money Power Monopolists have controlled the United States directly since at least 1913.  The "neo cons" exist as part of the Money Power Monopolist agenda...  THAT'S WHY THEY FINANCED THEM.  But the "liberals" are actually pushing the EXACT SAME AGENDA.

4. The Money Power Monopolists have made sure free elections don't exist in the United States.  Instead, they preselect candidates via their private financing of the private Democratic, Inc. party and the private Republican, Inc. party AND THE MONEY POWER DOESN'T WHICH ONE OF THEIR PREDETERMINED OPERATIVES YOU CHOOSE.

"The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.”
~Carroll Quigley, Georgetown University Professor, Tragedy and Hope, Bill Clinton handler

Suckahs...

5. “Sy you still don’t get it after all these years – the FBI catches bank robbers, the CIA robs banks.”  The CIA works for the Money Power Monopolists, the owner/controllers of the big banks.  The CIA runs the drugs laundered by the $100's of billions through banks like Wachovia and HSBC.  They also help launder the drugs.  They finance al Qaeda to overthrow countries without debt-based BIS controlled money systems.

The CIA is the Money Power Monopolists' asset.

6. They wanted war in Syria...  Syria doesn't have a BIS debt-based money central bank covertly and systematically asset stripping every citizen every second of every day.  Duh!  Oh, and "we" didn't do anything.  The Money Power Monopolist government and mega-corporate henchpeople did it on behalf of the Money Power Monopolist agendas.

7. It is going fantastic, thank you very much.  9/11 was used as a pretext to set up BIS debt-based money central banks in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and to keep pressure on Syria and Iran...  the latter two being attacked by an al Qaeda funded and armed by the Money Power Monopolist vassal United States government.

The major clue proving beyond any and all doubt that the official 9/11 narrative is obscuring a much different reality is that video based mathematical proof has been proferred that shows the top of the building 1 (IIRC) falling without deceleration.

Anyone who actually comprehended Physics 101 will know that this is impossible for the top of the building to do if it "hit" a reasonably solid structure below it (in fact, it would decelerate if it was dropped into Jello - you get the idea).

So, what you see is actually what you get - the building below the top section of the falling building is actually being blown up prior to to any contact made by the top of the building.

10. Noriega appears to have been taken out because the Money Power Monopolists wanted to seize control of the drug trade and double it.

It is the Money Power and their agenda.  Mercer and Adelson, at the end of the day, only need to know what their paymaster wants them to know.  It is called compartmentalization.

I don't know the mechanics of how it all works.  Perhaps it is done the veneer of secret societies.  Perhaps it is done through a Rockefeller or another Money Power agent sitting down with Trump and "making a deal."

Perhaps that "deal" was made long ago, which is why Trump was allowed access to the money that allowed him to become who you know as Donald Trump.

The point is Trump is a Money Power Monopolist operative pursuing the Money Power Monopolist agenda.

Trump said he was against Syria intervention, then he got into office and intervened with a bombing like Obama...  Bombing Syria is a Money Power Monopolist agenda...  they want to install a debt-based money central bank to covertly enslave the people of Syria.

Trump said he'd prosecute Hellary, then he got into office AND PROTECTED A KEY MONEY POWER MONOPOLIST ASSET FROM THE VERY PROSECUTION HE PROMISED...  HELLARY IS A MONEY POWER MONOPOLIST AGENT.

The CFR is a Money Power Monopolist creation.  It is one of several "round table groups" positioned around the globe.

The Money Power Monopolist own and control Goldman Sachs, among all the other Mega-Banks and Mega-Corporations, and their MO is to get a bunch of Goldman Sachs people into government to execute the Money Power Monopolist agenda...

Apparently, many of them are leaving, but my thesis all along is that Trump was put into power to be the Greatest Depression patsy and to falsely take responsibility for it when the fraudulent debt-based monetary system is to blame for it.  He's perfect - I can think of nobody better than Trump on the entire planet!

The bottom line is that people do what they are paid to do and THE MONEY POWER MONOPOLISTS ARE THE ULTIMATE EMPLOYER...  THEY CAN COLLUDE TO OUTBID ANYONE FOR ANYTHING THAT SUITS THEM.  They are the ultimate deal makers because they control everything big...  including drug cartels and government.

Sy Hersh is the original limited hangout operative. Hard to say exactly who pulls his strings, between CIA, Pentagon and the usual suspects but his job is to build fences around the 'facts'  Limited Hangout.  His opening gambit with My Lai was nothing else. Even though he now implies it was standard practice at the time his My Lai story was meant to present an isolated incident to show that the Pentagon cared and acted upon this incident. It was meant to set a border beyond which no official media could stray. This was the sum total of US war crimes and nothing else to see here folks. The true story was 1000 times worse.  He was the same limited hangout operative more recently with the killing of the Ghost of Bin Laden. I was there. The official story is bullshit but Sy's is no better.  There was NO raid. They crashed in someone's backyard. Many lives lost and an expensive, top secret helicopter, which the Pakis gave to China by the way. There was a second chopper to evacuate wounded but they left the flashy new one behind too long before the Pakistanis nabbed it.  Bin Laden died in 2001./

Dickless Cheney loves Trump. Remember the Madam that said if she was found to kill herself it would be murder, and not to believe she would ever kill herself. They found her in shed hanging by the neck and dead. Said it was suicide. She was interviewed by Alex Jones. Can't remember her name and too lazy tonight to search it. Anyways, one of the people rumored to be a client was dickless. Maybe not a rumor.

Hunter S. Thompson was working on exposing pedophilia in the Republican Party (maybe beyond as well) when he was murdered.

You are the one who has gone full retard. HST was himself a deeply sick and perverse man, who led a very dark life that you apparently are too lazy to research. He killed himself to appease his demons.

BONUS - to refute your assertion is trivially simple. NOBODY ON EARTH has catalogued and documented the sickness in the Republican Party more thoroughly than decorated Vietnam Vet and lawyer John Decamp. Following in his footsteps was British journalist Nick Bryant, both of whom are alive. Heck, it was Alex Jones, not HST who snuck into Bohemian Grove with a camera.

Wrong.

Analysis of the philosophy of Christ reveals that he was a Cynic of the Greek school who took on Jewish theology. That isn't random, and there is no way to get such an amalgamation out of multiple different people.

Lots of people added a lot of stuff after he died, sure. He was just a man, but at the same time, he was among the top five philosophers who ever lived.
