The Navy Seals and the Green Berets played critical roles during the lengthy Vietnam War. However, these Special Forces were not always allowed to fully coordinate their activities with the regular air, ground, and navy forces. As America’s Central Intelligence Agency’s interactions with the Special Forces are closely examined during this program, it becomes apparent that the agency failed to handle a number of operations effectively. Fortunately, the belated success of the “Phoenix” program proved that the CIA could design critical missions in Southeast Asia. Narrated by actor Charlton Heston, this program features footage of the Special Forces in action, and interviews with such noted individuals as Paul Beaver, Bui Tin, Dale Andrade, Phan Van Nhanh, Robert Marasco, and Nguyen Ngoc Hung.
