Description

Mother Jones investigates the continued effects of Agent Orange on the Vietnamese 25 years after the war ended. "In the years since the war's end... the reality of America's chemical warfare in Vietnam's forest and rice paddies has slowly begun to unfold. Though thousands of American veterans of the war now receive government compensation for illnesses linked to Agent Orange, the United States has yet to accept responsibility for the devastating effects of its campaign on Vietnam... Washington seems coldly indifferent to the havoc it unleashed on Vietnam, intent on ignoring it or making it go away." Mother Jones uncovers some evidence that Agent Orange has led to birth defects in Vietnamese children.
