 investigative journalist Seymour (Sy) Hersh

Seymour M. Hersh

is a journalist best known for exposing the massacre, by U.S. forces, of Vietnamese civilians near the village of My Lai on March 16, 1968.

Among his recent outings, Hersh exposed a conflict of interest by Richard Perle, who attempted to secure an arms deal while a government official at The Pentagon. After Hersh's piece in the New Yorker, Perle resigned as chairman of Donald Rumsfelds Defense Policy Board, and threatened to sue Hersh in the United Kingdom, where libel laws are more lenient toward the plaintiff. (Perle has never followed through.)

Hershs New Yorker piece exposed Perles business connections in Trireme Partners LP, a private fund that manages Saudi investment in homeland security companies, and the Autonomy Corporation, a British company that sells surveillance software to the FBI and to US, British and Italian intelligence.
