Abstract

There has still been no official explanation of the Christmas-New Year's bombing of Hanoi and Haiphong, and the U.S. media, even those which were against the war, seem to be willing to forget the whole affair as though it had been a bad dream. The reasoning seems to be that the cease-fire is the important thing and that what led up to it now has only an historical interest.
