22. I agree
Edited on Mon Jan-26-04 01:12 PM by 9215
I still don't know about McNamara entirely. It could be that, to some extent, he was duped on Vietnam. It was a very weird time in US history where the CIA and intel community in general had the upper hand. It wouldn't be surprising to find out that Johnson was duped by false info on the Gulf of Tonkin. The Pentagon Papers showed that the military was capable of lying to the President thereby setting the precedent.

This whole era needs a thorough going over from a historical perspective. The US has been living a big lie for a long time.
