The handout no doubt provided to those attending the 1973 Empire's New Clothes conference held at Michigan State University, which was to discuss U.S. foreign policy, and specifically MSU's involvement in said policy. The item thoroughly details MSU's direct involvement in the Vietnam War through its international programs for which it had received government funding.... "After the U. S. government had approached MSU about a possible technical assistance project in Vietnam .... [4 individuals] made a two week inspection tour of Vietnam and returned recommending that MSU provide 'technical assistance' to the Diem regime." And here we are.
