One short piece in this film slapped me upside the head– Nixon’s speech on November 03, 1969. In that televised speech he told America that he had an agreement with South Vietnam, and that as the South Vietnamese forces grew stronger, that the US would stand down. Then he said, “I have not, and do not intend to set a timetable for our withdrawal.”

Boy, doesn’t that sound fucking familiar?
