Fonda acted on conscience

I can see it now. An entire page of Letters to the Editor excoriating the Spokesman for running an editorial by Hanoi Jane. Other than the fact that she wrote it, it seemed pretty non-controversial to me.

I was in Vietnam at the same time that she was. I didn’t hate her then and I don’t hate her now. She acted on her conscience and, contrary to what others say, I don’t believe for a minute that her trip to Hanoi lengthened the war or resulted in additional American deaths. That falls on the politicians who got us there in the first place and then wouldn’t let us fight.
