NSA report confirms Gulf of Tonkin incident never happened

Chris in Paris, Who needs to study history any way? What could we possibly learn about people lying to drag a country into war? Then again, if you were drunk or blowing coke at the time, you might not have remembered any of it anyway.

The author of the report "demonstrates that not only is it not true, as (then US) secretary of defense Robert McNamara told Congress, that the evidence of an attack was 'unimpeachable,' but that to the contrary, a review of the classified signals intelligence proves that 'no attack happened that night,'" FAS said in a statement."

What this study demonstrated is that the available intelligence shows that there was no attack. It's a dramatic reversal of the historical record," Aftergood said.
