    Phoenix Program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In 2030 I am sure we will be hearing about similar actions in iraq & afgh

    Sorry, pal, but the reference about the Phoenix Program is bullshit.

    The Phoenix Program was an effective counterinsurgency program. It had problems, and murdering of civilian detainees certainly was part of those problems, but it was not as portrayed in the movies.

    Slow Burn: the Rise and Bitter Fall of American Intelligence in Vietnam by Orrin DeForrest is an excellent account of the Phoenix Program.

    Some of my mentors were participants in that program, and many of the techniques described by DeForrest were taught to me and my peers.

    It ain't nothing like the bullshit people like to believe.

    Read it and make up your own minds.
