Rolled this page back to remove an unsubstantiated assertion that Powell participated in the coverup of the My Lai massacre, inserted into a direct quotation from another source. Mutternich 11:50, 23 Apr 2004 (EDT)

From Yahoo! search "Colin Powell", "Mai Lai" (plus lots of Vietnamese links):

Yup. Problem with's edit was that s/he dropped these words, "Including participating in the coverup of the Mai Lai massacre", directly into the quotation from the government website, in effect putting those words into the government's mouth. Mutternich 12:37, 23 Apr 2004 (EDT)
