They're mostly not `against him' in the relevant sense (for this thread) of 
asserting witness of his alleged cowardice and incompetence in the face of 
the enemy. They are against his subsequent claims that the Vietnam war 
involved unjustified terror and atrocities, claims in which they feel 
painfully implicated. That dirty rat! Everyone knows that the Vietnam war 
was conducted in a polite and gentlemanly way by the Americans and their 
allies, much as the Iraq war is being conducted nowadays.
