I wasn't around for Vietnam

I was born right in the middle of it, and a very young child by the time it ended.

I have no problem with questioning the official narrative. But it has to be done intelligently.
A video with the lame and flawed logic like this one - offering it as "PROOF!" no less, like the "Jeff Bauman was an actor and never had legs" meme, do more harm than good for legitimate challenges to the narrative.

Things like this are nothing more than entertainment and titilation. There is no proof here, only speculation, conjecture and fantasy.

It's our responsibility as citizens to question the government, to hold it accountable and to put it under the microscope.

I absolutely agree. But like Josh said below - you don't throw all of your critical thinking skills out the window in a desperate grasp for an alternate narrative.

I for one, am skeptical of government and media narratives.

I am too. But I am also skeptical of "alternative media" narratives. Some people think that everything in the New York Times is false, and everything on Before Its News is true. That is throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Yes, be skeptical of official narratives. But be equally skeptical of alternate narrative, and don't just accept them because they are the alternate.

The government may lie to further its agenda. Some people lie because they like the attention.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
