    I wasn't referring to My Lai, but in general the participation of the Viet Cong in that war and their presence more or less on a continuum with the civilian population led to a lot of abuses that we learned about only anecdotally and well after the fact. Also, in that war the lust for high body counts on the part of both military higher ups and politicians--and the lying and distortion that flowed from it--was not only corrupting of service members up and down the ranks but really warped the US public's understanding of how the war 'progressed', as you note below.
