Lies of the Left -- Vietnam Atrocities
Well, now. It seems that many of the tales of atrocities supposedly committed by U.S. soldiers in Vietnam were either exaggerated or fabricated, but were uncritically accepted by American journalists and academics. Read about it here. This is not to say that no atrocities were committed nor that they should not be denounced and exposed, but the willingness, indeed eagerness, of American opinion elites to believe and publicize unproven allegations that place our military in a bad light is not just unseemly, it is pathological.
