Yesterday, reporter Seymour Hersh uncovered a U.S. led covert operation against Iran in an online report of New Yorker magazine.

"The Finding was focused on undermining Iran's nuclear ambitions and trying to undermine the government through regime change...working with opposition groups and passing money.

U.S. covert operations in Iran have been ongoing for the better part of a year and have included the seizing of Iranian citizens and transporting them to Iraq for interrogation. Furthermore, leading Republicans and Democrats gave a green light to the operations by signing off on a $400 million dollar budget.

The current administration does not believe NIE reports saying Iran has stopped its nuclear programs in 2005.

This should be big news. Generally, when nations cross over into other nations borders and kidnap citizens, it is considered an act of war.

However, a quick scan of msnbc, cnn and fox news shows, respectively, a bear scratching his back on a tree, a young man filling up his gas tank and a heartwarming story about a disfigured U.S. Army soldier determined to continue serving his country.
