The author describes how the stories of attrocities became exagerated. Many of the panels were Commie rigged especially those led by Bertrand Russel and VVAW. There was no examination of Communist attrocities.
Lewy is more charitable about the lies of the left regarding our POWs. Our POWs were starved and subjected to genuine torture. Many of the statements were coerced via torture. Men also died to avoid stating Communist lies. However, the nation never turned any scrutiny on known Communist Jane Fonda and David Dellinger who called the POW claims of torture lies. Moreover, there is ample evidence that POW's were tortured to provide American leftists with Photo Ops. I also refuse to believe Fonda, Hayden and many others were unaware of this torture.
The media largely ignored the story of tortured POW. It has totally ignored the complicity of Peace Activists and the American far left in the torture.
