Death Cards (Vietnam War Psy-Ops)


The “death card” is a common trope now a days since most people found out about them from the film Apocalypse Now. It seems like an Hollywood invention but they are real. I even have a reproduction of an original in my own collection. I have some photos for you and some commentary from a fellow who was part of the Phoenix program. Next week I will have a lot more to say on the CIA program developed by William Colby to destroy VCI cadre within RVN. It was not what it is made out to be my the median ( of course) and was a run away success that smashed the Viet Cong’s abilty to spread and recruit and rule by fear the numerous small villages in the rural areas of RVN.
