Excerpt: Bn Tre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia One of the most famous quotes of the Vietnam War was a statement attributed to an unnamed U.S. officer by AP correspondent Peter Arnett. Writing about the provincial capital, Bn Tre, on February 7, 1968, Arnett said: "'It became necessary to destroy the town to save it,' a United States major said today. He was talking about the decision by allied commanders to bomb and shell the town regardless of civilian casualties, to rout the Vietcong." The quote was distorted in subsequent publications, eventually becoming the more familiar, "We had to destroy the village in order to save it." The accuracy of the original quote, and its source, have often been called into question. Arnett never revealed his source, except to say that it was one of four officers he interviewed that day.

The New Republic at the time attributed the quote to US Air Force major Chester L. Brown. In Walter Cronkite's 1971 book, Eye on the World, Arnett reasserted that the quote was something "one American major said to me in a moment of revelation." However, one American veteran of the campaign, Captain Michael Miller, has written that he heard the comment being made by one Major Booris in a press briefing. ...
