On a June 1988, hour-long special CBS Reports: The Wall Within, one Vet Terry Bradley, told Dan Rather he had tortured and skinned alive whole Vietnamese families, 50 men, women, and children in a single hour. Another vet described slaughtering hordes of Vietnamese civilians, and blaming the North Vietnamese. In all the show presented 6 Vietnam Vets with horror stories of Gruesome American Atrocities committed in Vietnam.
The show was praised by critics, the Washington Post, a liberal rag at the time, called it extraordinarily powerful.
|Years later – Burkett and Whitley obtained the service records of all six soldiers, documenting where each was stationed throughout the Vietnam War. Only one of the men actually served in Vietnam; he claimed he was a Navy SEAL, but the records contradicted his claims and listed him as an equipment repairman , the other 5 never even set foot on Vietnamese soil. A completely fabricated and false narrative viewed by Millions.|
