Abstract:
The Viet Cong (VC) have met with little success in their countrywide effort to establish a government apparatus on the village and hamlet level. Liberation committees, often under another name, have been organized in some areas. In some instances, the committee members were appointed by the VC, and in others, elections were held. However, there is little evidence that these committees are actually functioning.
