TomDispatch Associate Editor Nick Turse, has the lead piece at the Nation magazine this week and it's a sobering walk down memory lane. "A My Lai a Month" is an exposé of American war crimes and the slaughter of thousands of civilians in Vietnam's Mekong Delta in the late 1960s, events about which, until Turse uncovered them almost 40 years later, little was known and less reported. Kudos to the Nation for publishing the piece. It's hard to read it and not wonder what the Nick Turses of 2048 will be writing about our present wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
