Title The Uncounted Enemy: A Vietnam Deception (80052)
Physical Color; sound
Copyrighted 1982
Length 75:00 min
Distributor Carousel Films, Inc (CARSL)
Audience SCA

<D8> Reveals that captured enemy documents during the Vietnam
War indicated that military intelligence was grossly
underestimating the size of the enemy forces. Suggests that
this data was suppressed by U.S. Army intelligence, leaving
the American public, the press, Congress, and perhaps
President Johnson with the impression that the enemy in
Vietnam had decreased in numbers. This is the program that
prompted General William Westmoreland's libel suit against
CBS. Produced by George Crile for the CBS Reports series.
