As the first president Bush exclaimed after the first Gulf War, “By God, we’ve kicked the Vietnam Syndrome once and for all.” Powerful political forces remain determined that we never learn any lessons from America’s disastrous war in Vietnam. There’s a new effort, called The Full Disclosure Campaign, presenting a clear alternative to the this effort to sanitize the Vietnam war and to thereby legitimize further unnecessary and destructive wars. On the first half  hour Merle Ratner of the Vietnam Agent Orange Relief and Reponsibility Campaign talks about the continuously exploding bomb of Agent Orange and efforts to help the generations of victims. And on the second part Professor Marjorie Cohn, former president of the National Lawyer’s Guild, focuses in on the US government’s specific efforts to sanitize the real history of that war so that we never learn what we must learn.
