Blitzer to Sy Hersh: "Do you want to name names?"

http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/04/10/hersh.access/ind...

<snip>

BLITZER: Do you want to name names?

HERSH: Are you kidding?

BLITZER: I'm giving you the opportunity.

HERSH: No. You know why? Because this is a punitive government right now. This is a government that pretty much has its back against the wall, as you've been saying all morning, in Iraq.

And in the military -- you know, one thing about our military is they're very loyal to the president, but they're getting to the edge. They're getting to the edge with not only (Secretary of Defense Donald) Rumsfeld but also with (Vice President Dick) Cheney and the president.

2. Or another acceptable answer:

BLITZER: Do you want to name names?

HERSH: Why...you never name your sources and why the fuck would I want to give a hack like you an exclusive?
