.....While scanning the obituaries in this mornng's N&R, I was struck by this bit of information on the life of Y-Yon Nie:

"From 1970 to 1973 he attended and graduated from The School of Government Administration and from 1973 to 1975 he served as Director of Ethnic Minority in Quang Duc Provence as well as Deputy Chief of the Montagnard in Khanh Ho Provence. Following the fall of South Vietnam in 1975, he was placed in prison by the communists, where he was badly mistreated, remaining there until 1980."

I'd be interested to hear Mr. Nie's views on the U.S. presence in South Vietnam.
