  1. Agent Orange What really happened…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJxb7CY13uc&feature=related

  2. Vet lawsuits against the chemical companies… • 1984 – chemical companies agree to pay 180 million, but vets have to drop all claims • Chemical companies do not take any responsibility

  3. What does this mean? • A totally disabled vet would receive $12,000 over the span of 10 years • A widow would receive $3,700

  4. What about the Vietnamese lawsuit?

  5. A judge dismissed it in 2005 • Judge said it did not fit chemical warfare and therefore did not violate international law • They appealed • Judge said it wasn’t designed to hit human targets, just a defoliant • The Supreme Court refused to hear either the US Veterans’ or the Vietnamese cases
