For those that misunderstood Jane Fonda (thought she somehow apologized for her part in the Viernam propanganda machine) the other day she cleared up her position on Dave Letterman.
NW YORK — Another war — another protest from Jane Fonda (search).So her image as Hanoi Jane is just a creation of ideologues and doesn't have anything to do with her. Those out there that hold this view are some how sick, but she is innocent in the creation of this image.
Fonda was on CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" (search) Wednesday night and Letterman asked how she feels about the war in Iraq.
Fonda got a big hand from Letterman's audience when she said, "I think the war is wrong. I think it's a mistake and I think we that should get out."
Letterman had just held up the infamous photo of Fonda sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun.
Fonda, who is promoting her autobiography, "My Life So Far," (search) said she is the "lightning rod" for the still open wounds of the Vietnam war and she feels "sad about that."
Fonda told Letterman her image as Hanoi Jane is a creation of ideologues to "promulgate their right wing, narrow world view. It really doesn't have anything to do with me and it's kind of sick."
This doesn't sound like anything close to an apology to me.
