60 Minutes II told the story of a secret military operation in Thanh Phong led by former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey. Kerrey, who originally went public with the story in the New York Times magazine, said he and his men accidentally massacred women and children in this Vietnamese hamlet after they were fired upon. Subsequent interviews by 60 Minutes II reveal that "the killings may not have been accidental and may in fact have been the result of a planned an deliberate operation... Eyewitnesses said there was no Viet Cong fire."
