A Humanitarian Need

This is not a question of who is responsible, legally or morally.
It is simply a humanitarian need.

America is at its best when it responds to humanitarian concerns, restores hope and dignity to a devastated people and closes its wounds from
the past.

> Addressing the ongoing-impacts of Agent Orange continues the American tradition of demonstrating courage, character and concern for others on the world stage.

> Americans are always among the first to respond to human suffering, whether from a natural disaster like the Haiti earthquake or the Asian tsunami, or war and conflict as in Darfur, Afghanistan, or Cambodia.

> Helping innocent children devastated by their parent’s exposure to Agent Orange/dioxin is treatment that can heal us all. It promotes a spirit of reconciliation as with Japan and Germany, formerly our enemies but now among our closest allies.
