Ken Burns has been criticized in the past for putting liberal propaganda into his supposed documentaries for PBS. However, according to some Vietnam War veterans who have gotten information about his documentary on the war. Burns has really gone over the top. Apparently, the so called documentary trashes America and the U.S. military specifically. The film appears to claim that Americans were fighting against the Vietnamese people, not with the South Vietnamese against communism.
In fact the word, communism is never used in the film, the support for the communist North Vietnam by the Soviet Union and China is never mentioned, and the atrocities committed by the communists against the civilian population are ignored. In addition, the heroism of American and South Vietnamese troops is also ignored. It is not surprising that John Kerry has endorsed the film.
