Jeff recruited me to the SWP in 1967. Somehow he has the strange idea 
that his sect can be inflated into becoming Cannon's SWP when it looks 
like it is moving more in the direction of becoming the new Workers 
World Party.

Leaving aside the folly of holding up Seymour Hersh's idiotic reporting 
at this point, it looks to me that Jeff does not know how to write 
proper prose. Like this:

 >>Here’s a sample of the evidence he employed in the London Review of 
Books to make his case:<<

When I read this sentence, I had the same sensation as if someone had 
scraped a garden rake across a blackboard. "The evidence he employed"? 
What the fuck? First of all, there is no "evidence", only the word of 
unnamed spooks. Beyond that, even if there was evidence, he should have 
written "the evidence he provided". God, learn to write, Jeff. (He was 
on Marxmail a while back. He probably walked away in disgust, bless his 
pointy little head.)
