I find Hersh’s story quite convincing. But should he have published it? Our lives depend on US officers who are willing to defy the madmen who have seized control of the West. Let them work quietly in the shadows. And don’t forget the commander of the US Navy’s Strategic Communications Wing, Capt. Heather Cole, who has not been heard of since the middle of March. It seems that she had refused to transmit the Trident D5 launch codes to the submarines.
