Seymour Myron "Sy" Hersh (born April 8, 1937) is an American investigative journalist and political writer. Hersh first gained recognition in 1969 for exposing the My Lai Massacre and its cover-up during the Vietnam War, for which he received the 1970 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. During the 1970s, Hersh covered the Watergate scandal for The New York Times and revealed Operation Menu, the clandestine bombing of Cambodia. In 2004, he reported on the U.S. military's torture of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison. Hersh has also won two National Magazine Awards and five George Polk Awards. Hersh has accused the Obama administration of lying about the events surrounding the death of Osama bin Laden, and disputed the claim that Bashar al-Assad's regime used chemical weapons on civilians in the Syrian Civil War.
