Former Communist Agent makes revealing remark

Ion Mihai Pacepa, a former agent from the formerly Communist Romania, says "Take it from this old KGB hand: The left is abetting America's enemies with its intemperate attacks on President Bush." Nothing new there.
But one paragraph in his essay gave me pause:
During the Vietnam War we spread vitriolic stories around the world, pretending that America's presidents sent Genghis Khan-style barbarian soldiers to Vietnam who raped at random, taped electrical wires to human genitals, cut off limbs, blew up bodies and razed entire villages. Those weren't facts. They were our tales, but some seven million Americans ended up being convinced their own president, not communism, was the enemy.
