11/11 History

Today in History

Viet Cong releases U.S. prisoners of war in 1967.  SSgt. James Jackson and MSgt. Edward Johnson were two African Americans released for propaganda purposes along with medic MSgt. Daniel Pitzer.  It was a great day for America even with the propaganda put out by our own state department.

The Viet Cong were after sympathy of civil rights demonstrators in the U.S. by releaseing the African American prisoners.  While U.S. officials in Saigon were keen to stop any anti-U.S. statements the released prisoners might make by saying they were brain washed.  Which was later proven untrue by the U. S. state department.
