Agent Orange Vietnam: Compensation for war victims is long overdue

The main excuse has been the lack of scientific clarity about the connection between Agent Orange and human health.

Consequently, no one – and least of all the United States – is entitled to complain about the lack of indisputable scientific evidence for postulated links between dioxin and various medical conditions, including birth defects.
