Makes you wonder who President Nixon would’ve chosen to be DefSec in ‘61 had the office not been stolen from him...
This is one of them, the guy really stoops for it:
"Early in his tenure rumors abounded that McNamara wanted to eliminate the Navys aircraft carriers "
The guy slams McNamara for a "rumor".
C-Span just had a 2 hr interview with McNamara, taped in 1995, discussing Macs just released autobiography. Fascinating. Especially the lengths Mac went to to ensure that his co-authored autobiography was factually correct and unbias.
Reminded me of General Sherman's autobiography. He sent a manuscript to every general officer mentioned in the book and asked for comments. Where appropriate, Sherman footnoted where there was a difference then printed that persons response in toto in the footnotes.
Mac was a class act.
Two months before JFK died, on the Presidents orders, he pulled a thousand men out of Nam. A week later, at a congressional hearing, a senator accused him of being a communist sympathizer.
And this poor excuse for modern journalism has the nerve to talk about revisionist history.
JFK was an American mistake. We’ve been screwed since Wilson.
Probably Curtis Lemay. We would have gone into Vietnam in a big way sooner and by the time the '64 elections rolled around it would have been over.
