what i find interestng about this story is....

upload.wikimedia.org...

Van Es became known worldwide for his photograph of a helicopter rescuing people from what is often believed to be the roof of the US embassy in Saigon. In fact the photo shows an apartment building that housed CIA staff.

He wrote in the New York Times in 2005: "One of the best-known images of the Vietnam war shows something other than what almost everyone thinks it does."


i thought it was people being rescued, even wikipedia says so but no its the damn CIA doing the runner. they made the mess and then they wig-out
surprise surprise.
