Because the USA knows that in a war that matches machine guns against
armored helicopters and MIG's, air power is decisive. From the very
beginning, the FSA complained about token support from Washington.

Because the WSJ's account is logical and maps to the facts while Hersh's
is ludicrous. Btw, this is not the first time that Hersh has stuck his
foot in his mouth.

The Dark Side of Spun a Lot?
Seymour Hersh and Iran
by MICHAEL YOUNG
It’s become a habit to greet whatever journalist Seymour Hersh writes
with reverence. However, after his ludicrous claim last summer that
Israel’s war in Lebanon was a trial run for an American bombing of Iran
– an accusation undermined by postwar narratives showing the confused
way Israel and the United States responded to the conflict – my doubts
hardened. In his latest New Yorker piece, Hersh maintains that he has
unearthed more dirt on the Bush administration: The US is involved in
containing Iran by directly or indirectly "bolstering Sunni extremist
groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to
America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda."
