Oliver Stone's My Lai Massacre

    Interesting stuff this week from Len about Oliver Stone nearly making a movie about the My Lai Massacre.

    Discussed previously in this forum was how Bob Dornan used My Lai to derail Jim Garrison and Mort Sahl from informing America about what really happened to JFK on the Steve Allen Show.

    Sy Hersh was able to use My Lai as a limited hangout to cover for Operation Phoenix. My guess is Oliver was ready to put it in it's proper context. That would explain why it never got made.
