High-ranking members of US military part of ‘Knights of Malta,’ ‘Opus Dei,’ reporter claims
Veteran investigative reporter Seymour Hersh has broken some massive stories in his day, but uncovering secret societies within the highest echelons of America's military would probably be the biggest of his career.

Well, get ready for the media storm, because that's essentially what Hersh told an audience in Doha, Qatar recently, according to a report published earlier this week by Foreign Policy.

Speaking at a campus operated by Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, Hersh said he was working on a new book that details "how eight or nine neoconservative, radicals if you will, overthrew the American government."

"It's not only that the neocons took it over but how easily they did it -- how Congress disappeared, how the press became part of it, how the public acquiesced," he continued, according to the published quotes.

Hersh also lamented President Obama's continuance of the Bush administration's worst abuses.

1. As such, they are not fit to serve in the US Military.
If you want to join 'Opus Dei', fine, but you cannot work in government, military, or the health industry.

Unless this is remedied, somehow, by the current administration, we are truly fucked.

3. I knew the Air Force was
filled w/ fundies. Now the catholics are bloodthirsty as well.

Kings of Malta? Shit. These organized religions are just wacky. Opus Dei freaked me out...now this?

Looking forward to Hersch's book.

5. Better believe it
They also stated the wars in Viet Nam and Central America. Using Americans as cannon fodder to promote their religious agenda.

His record is very good. Go tell that to someone who gives a shit.
