Wasn't it just a couple of weeks ago we were hearing certain people claim that the US had never committed atrocities in Vietnam--the assumption being that that was just not an American trait, I guess.
Now it becomes relevant. Do we laud the people who reported on the despicable acts in Iraq? Do we condemn the people who testified in court and before congress about despicable acts in Vietnam? Are the people who blew the whistle on Iraqi atrocities materializing jeopardizing our efforts in Iraq?
