     AIM is currently working on a story examining TIME magazine and CNN’s "expose" of the U.S. government’s supposed use of nerve gas during the Vietnam war.  A summary of our findings can be found in the press release, and in the letters from AIM chairman Reed Irvine to the CNN Chairman and the Managing Editor of TIME.

     We are also posting copies of CNN’s published transcripts of the two segments on Operation Tailwind that aired on their program, NewsStand, on June 7th and 14th, 1998, as well as a companion article which was featured in the June 15, 1998 issue of TIME.

     We will be continually updating this section of the web site as the Operation Tailwind story unfolds, so check back often.
