Perhaps betraying senior moments, long-time reporters Seymour “Sy” Hersh 
(76) and Richard Sale (74) have penned articles of the sort that were 
rampant in the weeks following Barack Obama’s threats to do something 
about Bashar al-Assad’s August 21 sarin gas attack on East Ghouta. 
Despite the consensus among the “anti-imperialist” left was that Obama 
intended to attack Syria as a prelude to attacking Iran, after the 
fashion of Hitler using Poland as a launching pad for invading the USSR, 
it has been revealed that at that very moment the U.S. and Iran were 
involved in secret talks designed to reorient American foreign policy 
against the “jihadist” threat.
