My Lai hero dies

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Hugh Thompson Jr, who intervened to stop the massacre and saved lives, died yesterday. Thompson's role was not known for years and he even was attacked by some in Congress who thought that he should have been prosecuted. Sounds like those people were the early Swift Boaters. I wonder if those attackers ever asked questions about Colin Powell and his classic military response of trying to sweep it all under the rug, a response that never seems to go away.
