Revisiting the Grenada invasion The murder of a natural leader After the Vietnam War, pretty much the entire US populace was sick of war and militarism.

Seymour Hersh recalls How the story broke The original official report which appeared on the front page of the New York Times said it was a combat engagement that left 120 Vietcong dead. In reality over 500 civilians, mostly women and children, were killed in cold blood. 18 months later Seymour Hersh received an anonymous tip and the public finally learned the truth.
