This incident reinforced the anti-war movement, but you should know the rest of the story. http://bit.ly/2ik7vjK
The lesson to take away from Brig. Gen. Loan’s public execution of a Viet Cong officer serves as a lesson: never accept at face value news stories. Then as now journalism is dead. Reporters write slanted stories and publish select photographs to reinforce a radical point of view.
Proverbs 18:17 warns, “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.“
A Biblical principle applies. Deuteronomy 19:15 challenges the credibility of witnesses, prescribing verification, saying, “A single witness shall not suffice against a person for any crime or for any wrong in connection with any offense that he has committed. Only on the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses shall a charge be established.“
As we move into a new year and a new era, let’s be diligent to verify rumors and news stories through personal research.
May God bless the reader and may He bless America.
