Fred Branfman – Obituary – The Daily Telegraph


“The Plain of Jars, what it’s a symbol of, is how those people on the vague frontiers, those people in the Third World, those people we never see, we never know about, we never hear, can be vaporised, wiped off the face of the earth without people back here even knowing about it.”

My obituary of US whistle-blower Fred Branfman who exposed the bombing of Laos in the later 1960s in today’s Daily Telegraph.
