During the Vietnam War, the U.S. Army's "Tiger Force" platoon spied on and disrupted enemy operations in the highlands of South Vietnam. Articles in the Toledo Blade newspaper allege that members of Tiger Force also ruthlessly killed perhaps hundreds of Vietnamese civilians. NPR's Melissa Block talks with reporter Michael Sallah of the Blade.
