In June 2001, Nick Turse was a graduate student researching post-traumatic stress disorder among Vietnam veterans at the U.S. National Archives when an archivist asked him if witnessing war crimes could cause PTSD. And would he like to see some papers? So began a ten-year investigation of U.S. war crimes committed during the war in Vietnam – crimes the Pentagon investigated and substantiated, and then covered up. Nick Turse's research led him from the National Archives to the homes of U.S. veterans and of Vietnamese survivors. The declassified documents and the interviews he collected suggest that war crimes like My Lai were not isolated incidents, but were both pervasive and systemic, causing the deaths of perhaps millions of Vietnamese civilians.
With Nick Turse, author of a forthcoming book called Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam. Mr. Turse is an award-winning journalist and historian, managing editor for TomDispatch.com and a fellow at The Nation Institute. He's also the author of The Complex: How the Military Invades Our Everyday Lives.
