THERE WAS A LOT OF THAT, AND WHAT I’M LEARNING NOW IS MAKING ME DOUBT A LOT OF PRIOR NARRATIVES: File Under “Fake News from Vietnam.”

Related (From Ed): “The general killed the Viet Cong; I killed the general with my camera. Still photographs are the most powerful weapon in the world. People believe them, but photographs do lie, even without manipulation. They are only half-truths. What the photograph didn’t say was, ‘What would you do if you were the general at that time and place on that hot day, and you caught the so-called bad guy after he blew away one, two or three American soldiers?’”

Update: From Neo: A mind is a difficult thing to change: (Part 7B: the Vietnam photos revisited).
