So far over the past couple of weeks I have made progress in my research. After looking into my primary sources more closely, I realize that my documentaries and interviews are even more valuable sources that I originally gave them credit for. One interview Fonda did with Phil Donahue has become my main primary source in understanding reactions to Fonda and her visit to Hanoi. I have found a new issue that my secondary sources do not address, and that is how uninformed the citizens of the U.S. were of what was happening in Vietnam. Some wanted to believe in their government and went against Fonda, and even some of the citizens who supported her really did not know what was going on. Few only knew the basics of what was happening in Vietnam.
