    uh EVERYTHING i said is factual evidence that you obviously have no interest in knowing about. This book here has NEVER been debunked and takes the people like you who think you know it all to school.this author spent THOUSANDS of hours pouring over released documents in the archives,if you want to continue to be ignorant and ignore the facts thats your problem.

    American Tragedy is the first book to draw on complete official documentation to tell the full story of how we became involved in Vietnam--and the story it tells decisively challenges widely held assumptions about the roles of Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson. Using an enormous range of source materials from these administrations, Kaiser shows how the policies that led to the war were developed during Eisenhower's tenure and nearly implemented in the closing days of his administration in response to a crisis in Laos; how Kennedy immediately reversed course on Laos and refused for three years to follow recommendations for military action in Southeast Asia; and how Eisenhower's policies reemerged in the military intervention mounted by the Johnson administration. As he places these findings in the context of the Cold War and broader American objectives, Kaiser offers the best analysis to date of the actual beginnings of the war in Vietnam, the impact of the American advisory mission from 1962 through 1965, and the initial strategy of General Westmoreland.

    A deft re-creation of the deliberations, actions, and deceptions that brought two decades of post-World War II confidence to an ignominious end, American Tragedy offers unparalleled insight into the Vietnam War at home and abroad--and into American foreign policy in the 1960s.


    there is also THIS excellent link as well that documents it all and takes you sir to school.LOL

    Kennedy continued to resist all attempts to persuade him to send troops to Vietnam. His policy was reinforced by the Bay of Pigs operation. Kennedy told his assistant secretary of state, Roger Hilsman: “The Bay of Pigs has taught me a number of things. One is not to trust generals or the CIA, and the second is that if the American people do not want to use American troops to remove a Communist regime 90 miles away from our coast, how can I ask them to use troops to remove a Communist regime 9,000 miles away?

    I've read the book.

    David Kaiser only opined to defend the Kennedy legacy.

    It's revisionism based upon the "theories" of William Strauss and Neil Howe.

    ]You still haven’t answered my question. What would we have gained had we not gone into Vietnam other than hundreds of thousands not killed or maimed
