Agent Orange’s Legacy in Laos

The US Army’s targeted spraying of Agent Orange during the Vietnam war in the neutral nation of Laos  “secretly, illegally and in large amounts — remains one of the last untold stories of the American war in Southeast Asia.”
 
Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange have received compensation—not so in Laos.
 
An investigation by the War Legacies Project has finally revealed the true extent of the spraying and the deformities it has caused generations after the war ended. The project team hopes their findings will be impossible for Lao and US officials to ignore.
