Nick Turse: The United States Hasn't Owned up to Vietnam War Crimes

The United States has yet to come to terms with the civilian casualties and war crimes perpetrated by its military during the Vietnam War—and Nick Turse has dedicated twelve years of his life to changing that.

In an interview with Bill Moyers on Moyers & Company, Turse, an Investigative Fund Fellow at The Nation Institute, described discovering a “horror trove” of massacres, murders, mutilation and torture in the course of his research.

The results of Turse's long and meticulous investigation into the dark side of the US military have just been published in his book Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam.
