10/13/17 Marjorie Cohn on the whitewashing of Agent Orange in Ken Burns’s “Vietnam War”

by | Oct 13, 2017 | Interviews

Marjorie Cohn joins the show to discuss her recent article, “The Vietnam War is Not History for Victims of Agent Orange.” Cohn elaborates on her major criticism of the Ken Burns Vietnam War documentary—his lack of coverage of agent orange. Cohn describes many of the awful results of agent orange exposure, how the United States has denied opportunities for victims to seek justice, and above all, why it remains a pressing issue to this day.

Marjorie Cohn is a professor emerita at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and the author of numerous books including “Drones and Targeted Killing: Legal, Moral, and Geopolitical Issues.” Find all of her work at her website marjoriecohn.com.
