Frederic (Fred) R. Branfman, March 18, 1942 - September 24, 2014

Lest we forget these egregious war crimes from our recent history: “...[I]nvestigations by Branfman and others showed that 2 million tons of bombs were dropped on Laos from 1965 to 1973 — about one ton for every Laotian man, woman and child — in a relentless campaign to blunt the operations of the North Vietnamese and the allied Pathet Lao.

The planes came like the birds, and bombs fell like the rain,’ Branfman, quoting one of the refugees, wrote in the New York Times in early 1971 after leaving Laos and joining the antiwar movement at home.”
