Fifty years ago this last June a Viet-namese girl was photographed running naked away from a napalm attack. The New York Times mentioned this photograph in a May Obit about Horst Faas. Incidently, the girl is now a Canadian woman living in Canada.
The gripe is that The New York Times says the attack was by an American aircraft. To the comman man that means American markings and an American aircrew. In fact, while the airplane was manufactured in Southern California, it was a Viet-namese Air Force owned and operated aircraft.
The Old Gray Lady, our national newspaper of record appears to be unwilling to admit the mistake.
