Photos That Helped Turn a War

Everybody remembers Seymour Hersh's detective work for print but who took the now famous photos of the My Lai massacre, which first appeared 40 years ago today? The combat photographer whose pictures of a massacre of Vietnamese civilians were published in Cleveland's Plain Dealer 40 years ago recalls it was hard for people to believe what U.S. troops had done. The Plain Dealer of Cleveland helped expose the killings at My Lai when photos taken by Sgt. Ron Haeberle appeared in the newspaper on Nov. 20, 1969. The AP reports: "Haeberle had been honorably discharged by the military the previous year and decided to share his pictures with his hometown newspaper. Haeberle, who's now 68, says he's glad if his action helped bring a turning point in the Vietnam War."
