If—then, get it?
If what Hersh wrote was fiction, then it was plagiarism. I clearly stated I do not believe what he wrote was fiction. The necessary condition was not triggered. Therefore there is no plagiarism.
If A, then B
Therefore, not A
My point has been made and this has been far overblown. My bad for not writing something earlier, but I'm way over-committed in my regular life which is far removed from this.
So I didn't get a footnote.
I will not belabor it further.
What’s important is getting to the merits of what Hersh is writing about.
As I’ve said many times. Hersh nailed it. History will again prove him right. Today's Washington Post points out that it has so many times in the past. There is a reason the guy is a legend.
