Agent Orange, Chemical Warfare, Vietnam, Syria: The Last Word

Sept. 10 — To the Editor:
I am responding to a recent letter to the editor from David Wickham on Sept. 7 that criticized a letter I had previously written on our government's chemical warfare with Agent Orange in Vietnam.
September 15, 2013 — To the Editor:
Agent Orange was criminal.
I am writing to add a bit of information about our government's decision to use Agent Orange and the subsequent cover-up. In his recent letter, Mr. Meinhold documents that our Department of Defense knew they were spraying dioxin, a very, very powerful carcinogen, citing specifics from Admiral Zumwalt's 1990 report to the VA.
