|It covers the land like kudzu|
I'm not even going to touch on the content of the story - It's the usual crap that I grew up with about Viet Nam, Nixon, dark forces, hoodwinked citizens, cultural racism - which calls the POW/MIA flag a "shroud" that's "as common as kudzu" (nice image Rick). But I do want to comment on the "apology" that was forced out of HFV's minion, Lou Dubose, who "edits" TWS and, I guess, has responsibility for what's printed in it (Newsweak has no excuse). Dubose says in part:
"We published Rick Perlstein’s article on the POW/MIA flag, because it insightfully examines the cynical manipulation of public opinion at the expense of the downed pilots and foot soldiers the creators of the MIA movement claimed to represent."
