Following WND’s report on CBS’“The Amazing Race” taking contestants to Hanoi, where they sat through a communist presentation, and went to a display celebrating the death of Americans, the network has issued an apology.

Liberals (from fear) and conservative alike had condemned the show.

During Sunday evening’s episode of the show, which features teams in a global competition, the network apologized to Vietnam veterans for the previous week’s episode.
“Parts of last Sunday’s episode, filmed in Vietnam, were insensitive to a group that is very important to us: our nation’s veterans,” said Phil Keoghan, the show’s host.“We want to apologize to veterans – particularly those who served in Vietnam – as well as to their families and any viewers who were offended by the broadcast. All of us here have the most profound respect for the men and women who fight for our country.”

Dan Gainor, vice president of the Media Research Center’s Culture and Media Institute, said while it is good that the network apologized, the fact that it was produced in the first place shows they are out of touch with the majority of Americans.

there is even more than that for the Korean War. according to the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office there are still 7,989 U.S. servicemen still unaccounted for from the Korean War.
.
both wars had us from the USA helping out a country to help keep it from becoming part of a commie country.
