Cambodia. Now we learn that Cambodia has been bombed even longer than we suspected.Seymour Hersh of The New York Times, the best reporter in this country, revealed last week that the military waged secret air strikes there beginning in 1969.

The Senate is now investigating--its task not made any easier by a conflicting stream of lies flowing from high level cesspools. Nixon's speech announcing the invasion of Cambodia in May 1970, the one where he fooled around with the maps as if he were commanding the German General Staff, now appears expecially ironic in retrospect.
