At Tu Du Hospital in Saigon, babies in a special unit have enlarged heads or are missing limbs. Nguyen Thuy Linh, a lovely 12-year-old girl who was born without arms, writes with her feet. Thirty years after the end of the Vietnam War, she is among several million victims of Agent Orange. In THE LAST GHOST OF WAR, we meet victims who are plaintiffs in a class action suit against 32 U.S. chemical companies.
These Vietnamese victims are seeking compensation and justice. The question is were these dioxin-laden herbicides chemical weapons? And if so, who should be held accountable in the wake of what was arguably the largest chemical warfare operation in history?
