What I am presenting here as evidence is, as we used to say about the My Lai massacre, just the tip of the iceberg. A reader might conclude, even based on this limited sampling, that certainly after November 1969 Americans were hearing and reading on a regular basis in the mainstream media the widely published message from elements of the antiwar movement and from war veterans themselves that atrocities in Vietnam were in fact the norm. And that they were the direct outcome of U.S. government policies and "orders from above," however explicitly or implicitly delivered.

If that message failed to be heard, that's another thing entirely.  

Michael Uhl's articles and criticism have appeared in national magazines from Forbes to House Beautiful, and from GEO to The Nation. He served in Vietnam as a combat intelligence officer with the 11th Infantry. His book Vietnam Awakening is a memoir of his experiences at war and, subsequently, within the movement against the war. He is currently involved in the Vietnam War Commemoration CORRECTION Project, because, while the war is long past, the battle over its history goes on. This essay first appeared at  In The Mind Field  and appears with his permission in  ThisCantBeHappening! , the new independent Project Censored Award-winning online alternative newspaper.
