Description

The Associated Press discovered American troops had killed hundreds of refugees during the Korean War. This story drew national acclaim and influenced American foreign policy after Defense Secretary William Cohen ordered an internal army investigation and National Security Advisor Sam Berger "called the AP report disturbing". The AP used the Freedom of Information Act and "reviewed hundreds of boxes of official war journals, communications logs, action reports, radio messages, and other declassified military documents" to do the investigation.
