Douglas Valentine on the Ken Burns Vietnam documentary

Michael S. Gordon/The Republican

Our friend and expert correspondent on the CIA, Douglas Valentine, recently appeared on Our Hidden History speaking about the new PBS documentary about the Vietnam war. Andrew Stewart has previously written an analysis about how Burns handled the Civil War that might prove instructive for the prism through which to view this new offering.

And then just for the sake of demonstrating how Ken Burns and Lynn Novick like to carry on in public, here is a very sympathetic interview done with Reason Magazine’s Nick Gillespie. And perhaps it bears mentioning that one of major sponsors of the PBS series, oligarch David Koch of Koch Brothers fame, is a trustee/funder of the Reason Foundation that publishes the magazine.
