    Anthony and Richard P. Common sense tells us that a Rockefeller hireling such as Kissinger would not be setting up an "international control" system which takes assets from the Rockefellers and gives them to someone else. Moreover, six suspected war criminals were allowed to resign from military service during the criminal investigations specifically to avoid prosecution. Monopoly capitalism is impossible unless you have a government with the power to strangle would-be competitors. You may be assured, however, that the Rockefellers and their allies are not talking about reducing their own quality of life. I would never work for that man.

    Quy was a young journalist for South Vietnamese state media during the Tet Offensive; when news of the attack reached him in Saigon, where he was based, he headed home to Hue to see the carnage firsthand. It was the game of boom and bust, using economic crisis to consolidate political power at the top where it can be most easily controlled. His first and only choice of assignments -- Vietnam. Making brilliant use of new documentary sources and interviews from the American as well as the North Vietnamese side, he has made a singular contribution to our understanding of U. Let us not soon forget.

    Victor B. While other attacked cities were cleared of communist forces within a few days, Hue was seized almost entirely, leaving only small pockets of U. The North Vietnamese soldier Dai, who is now a composer and among the relatively few Vietnamese citizens who openly calls for an end to single-party rule, remembers seeing people being taken away in vehicles. He was, however, sentenced to no punishment. However, it is equally important to understand that the "Tiger Force" atrocities were not the mere result of "Rogue GIs" but instead stem from what historian Christian Appy has termed the American "doctrine of atrocity" during the Vietnam War -- a strategy built upon official U.

All of these studies provide much detail, although, as noted, they are thin on some aspects of CIA's work. At the time of the request none of the governments involved in the war any longer existed—even the North Vietnamese state had been transformed—the CIA actors were in retirement, the Vietnam war had entered history, and the most recent events concerned were almost twenty years into the past.

In his Vice Presidential hearings, Nelson Rockefeller even acknowledged that Kissinger took the job because Rocky asked him to do so. Agency involvement went beyond cash to include using CIA agents to feed ideas to South Vietnamese leaders, openly providing suggestions for a political platform, supporting individual candidates, using agents to counteract charges of electoral fraud, and manipulating the South Vietnamese National Assembly to certify election results.
