While phones were opened for viewer comments, scenes were shown of the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum and museum in Hanoi, Vietnam. Admiral Zumwalt and Prof. Schechter discussed the use of the defoliant Agent Orange. The defoliant contains dioxins which have been associated with an increased rate of physical and mental handicaps in Vietnamese children in areas where it was sprayed. Mr. Irvine claimed that a disinformation campaign by North Vietnam during the war forced the U.S. to stop using the defoliant Agent Orange. Accuracy in Media maintains that there is still no real proof that Agent Orange causes any physical problems except for a type of acne. Cameras followed Le Duc Loi as he gave a tour of the Prosthetics Research Center in Hanoi. Two patients responded to questions concerning their treatment. Fred Downs and Tran Van Ca responded to viewer comments and discussed helping Vietnamese citizens who are handicapped. In a telephone interview, Robert Dalton discussed arranging seminars in Hanoi on the effects of a market economy on a socialist society. close
