COMIT/X4 report entitled "Skunks, Bogies, Silent Hounds, and the
Flying Fish. The Gulf of Tonkin Mystery, 2-4 August 1964:
"Two startling findings
emerged from the new research. First, it
is not simply there is a different story as to what happened; it is
that no attack happened that night. Through a compound of analytic
errors and an unwillingness to consider contrary evidence, American
SIGINT elements in the region and at NSA HQs reported Hanoi's plans
to attack two ships of the Desoto patrol. Further analytic errors and
an obscuring of other information let to publication of more
"evidence." In truth, Hanoi's navy was engaged in nothing that night
but the salvage of two of the boats damaged on 2 August."
"The second finding pertains
to the handling of the SIGINT
material related to the Gulf of Tonkin by individuals at NSA.
Beginning with the period of the crisis in early August, into the
days of the immediate aftermath, and continuing into October 1964,
SIGINT information was presented in such a manner as to preclude
responsible decision makers in the Johnson administration from having
the complete and objective narrative of events of 4 August 1964.
Instead, only SIGINT that supported the claim that the communists had
attacked the two destroyers was given to administration

- Major General Douglas D. Gracey, of the Army of the United Kingdom,
violates the orders he had received from Allied Commander for Southeast
Asia, Lord Louis Mountbatten, and declares martial law in Saigon.
Gracey bans public meetings by Vietnamese citizens, and indigenous
language newspapers closed down'although French electronic media are
allowed to continue to function. Realizing he cannot enforce his rule
with only eighteen hundred British, Indian and Gurkha troops under his
command, Gracey arms fourteen hundred paratroopers and Foreign
Legionnaires, of the Army of France, who had been interned during the

paratroopers, of the Army of France, who had been armed by southern
Vietnamese military dictator Major General Douglas D. Gracey, of the
Army of the United Kingdom, the day before, go on a rampage in Saigon.
The soldiers raid city hall, then move onto police stations, and other
public buildings, raising the French flag from rooftops. Emboldened
French citizens take up arms, and raid the homes of indigenous
Vietnamese, indiscriminately clubbing men, women and children.
- The Vietnamese-French War/First Vietnam War begins in Saigon: a
general strike, which had been called by the Vietminh the day before,
in response to anti-Vietnamese rioting, by French colonials, three days
previous, paralyzes the city: utilities do not function; shops and
offices are closed; public transportation has disappeared from the
streets. Twenty thousand panicked French citizens barricade themselves
into the Continental Palace Hotel. Meanwhile Vietminh guerillas close
down the airport, burn the central market, and storm the local prison
liberating hundreds of their comrades. In the Cit' H'rault, Binh Xuyen
terrorists (a splinter group from the Vietminh) sneak through armed
Japanese soldiers, who had been ordered to protect the Saigon suburb
and massacre any French citizens that could be found.
- Lieutenant Colonel A. Peter Dewey, of the Office of Strategic
Services, becomes the first American to die in Vietnam. Dewey is
killed, after he is mistaken for a French officer at a Vietminh
roadblock in Saigon. Dewey had been on his way to the airport, having
been ordered to leave by Major General Douglas D. Gracey, of the Army
of the United Kingdom. Before leaving, Dewey summed up in his final
report to William J. 'Wild Bill' Donovan, Director of the OSS,
'Cochinchina is burning, the French and British are finished here, and
we [the United States] ought to clear out of Southeast Asia.'
In appreciation for OSS officers having saved his life eight months
previous, General Ho Chi Minh, of the Vietminh, sent a letter of
condolence to the James Byrnes, secretary of state.
Kurnow, 139-40, 675. [added 4/14/2002]
- General Ho Chi Minh, of the Vietminh Militia, reluctantly agrees with
Jean Sainteny, special emissary of President Felix Gouin of France, to
allow twenty-five thousand soldiers from the Army of France into
Vietnam, for a period of five years. This is an effort to drive out
their ancient enemy the Chinese'on the condition that France recognizes
Vietnamese independence. Ho has a very difficult persuading his
lieutenants that the French were a lesser evil than the Chinese:
fools! Don't you realize what it means if the Chinese remain? Don't you
remember you history? The last time the Chinese came, they stayed a
thousand years. The French are foreigners. They are weak. Colonialism
is dying. The white man is finished in Asia. But if the Chinese stay
now, they will never go. As for me, I prefer to sniff French s___ for
five years than eat Chinese s___ for the rest of my life."
- Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh agrees to the return of the Army of
France to Vietnam, to protect the Vietnamese from their traditional
enemies, the Chinese (the Nationalist faction under dictator Chaing Kai
Shek). In return, France agrees to recognize the concept of Vietnamese
independence modeled after the British Commonwealth of Nations:
French Government recognises the Republic of Vietnam as a free state,
having its Government. its Parliament, its army, and its finances, and
forming part of the Indochinese Federation and the French Union.
Government of Vietnam declares itself ready to receive the French army
in friendly fashion when, in accord with international agreements, it
relieves the Chinese troops. An annex attached to the present
Preliminary Convention will fix the terms under which the operation of
relief will take place.

stipulations formulated above shall enter into effect immediately upon
exchange of signatures. Each of the contracting parties shall take
necessary steps to end hostilities, to maintain troops in their
respective positions, and to create an atmosphere favourable for the
immediate opening of friendly and frank negotiations. These

between Vietnam and foreign states, the future status of Indochina, and
economic and cultural interests. Hanoi, Saigon, and Paris may be
indicated as the locales of the negotiations.
The following November the French reneged on the agreement, and bombed
Viet Minh positions at Haiphong harbor. After a month of fighting, the
Viet Minh retreated into the jungles and hills, and resumed guerilla
warfare against the French.
6/1/1946 - High Commissioner for
Indochina, Admiral Thierry d'Argenlieu, of the Army of France,
proclaims a separate government for Cochinchina (the southern third of
Vietnam). This is in violation of the agreement three months previous
that France would respect the establishment of a single, autonomous
- President Vincent Auriol, of France, and former French and Japanese
puppet Emperor Bao Dai, of Vietnam (who has no popular support from his
countrymen), sign the Elys'e Agreement. The pact reaffirms the
principle of Vietnamese independence, unifies the regions of
Cochinchina (south), Amman (central), and Tonkin (north) into a united
Vietnam; but the agreement also allows France to maintain control of
financial, foreign and military affairs.
- The Cold War contniues: Fearing a communist takeover in Southeast
Asia, Democratic (socialist/fascist) President Truman extends
diplomatic recognition to the puppet French-Vietnamese government of
King Bao Dai. During the Axis War (World War II), the Army of Japan
allowed 'king' Bao Dai to remain on the throne as a puppet ruler. The
majority of the Vietnamese people now see Bao Dai as a Japanese
collaborator and traitor, and will not support his rule over them. Ho
Chi Minh, the leader of the independent Vietnam movement, who, during
the Axis War saved many downed American pilots from the fate of a
Japanese prisoner of war camp, interprets this as an act of betrayal.
Ho vows to purge his land of foreign Franco-American influence.
Beginning in 1949, and throughout the decade of the 1950s, communist
Yugoslavia was the receipient of millions of 'dollars' worth of United
States military and economic aid, as a check against Soviet expansion
in Europe. But not such aid was given to Ho as a check against Chinese
expansion in Asia. Phyliss Auty, Tito, (New York: McGraw-Hill, 1970), 255-56. Kurnow, 677. Truman, 433.
- Democratic (socialist/fascist) President Truman announces a ten
million 'dollar' military aid package for France, to aid its struggle
to maintain its colony in Indochina (Vietnam). Truman is sending this
aid to be used against his loyal, one-time ally Ho Chi Minh.
By the end of 1953, the U.S. was paying over 80% of the cost of the
Franco-Vietnamese War/First Vietnam War, at a total expenditure of over
two billion 'dollars.' Date not exact.

6/27/1950 - The United Nations
Security Council passes Resolution 82, authorizing Commander-in-Chief
Truman to use military force against the communist Democratic Republic
of (North) Korea. In compliance, Truman issues a press release stating
that he is extending the Truman Doctrine to the Pacific, and orders
United States Armed Forces'Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air
Force'(private mercenaries) to South Korea. This begins the United
States fifth foreign war (this time undeclared). Although he was a
valued ally during the Axis War (World War II), Truman does not trust
General Ho Chi Minh, of the communist Vietnminh, for fear that Ho will
align with Vietnam's ancient enemy the mainland, communist People's
Republic of ('Red') China. Also at this time, Truman orders the Seventh
Fleet of the United States Navy to patrol the waters off the coast of
Taiwan, in case of Chinese decides to enter the Korean-American War.

The siege at Di'n Bi'n Ph'
begins: General Vo Nguyen Giap, of the Vietminh Militia, attacks the
Far East Expeditionary Corps of France, which had fortified itself 35
miles inside Laos from the Vietnam border. The fort had been set up as
a trap for the Vietnamese army by Brigadier General Christian Marie
Ferdinand de la Croix de Castries, who plans to annihilate the
Vietnamese independence movement by drawing it out into the open then
destroying it with superior air power.
this idiot also built his fortress on a valley floor, around his only
means of reliable support, an airfield. Giap had his people slowly drag
artillery tubes and ammo up the backside trails, until they could drop
plunging fire down on the Legionnaires, at will. Giap also launched
sappers to approach the French lines at their choice of points. The
French lost a lot of people and finally surrendered, beaten. As did the
United States almost two decades later. '' JL

pilots to search for and destroy Vietcong positions. Not only does
Agent Orange destroy foliage, but also crops.
the next decade, over 19 million gallons of Agent Orange were sprayed
over thirty thousand square miles of South Vietnam. This did not defeat
the Vietcong. But it did consistently destroy rice crops, causing
famine and overcrowding in the cities.
Four decades later the last
of the 20,000,000 tons of herbicides and defoliants were dropped on
Vietnam, much of the attacked areas remain unable to support anything
other than a weed known as 'American Grass.'

man in America,' Walter Cronkite, television news-anchor for the

impromptu editorial against continued United States involvement the
Vietnamese-American War/First Vietnamese Civil War/Second Vietnam War:
back in more familiar surroundings in New York, we'd like to sum up our
findings in Vietnam, an analysis that must be speculative, personal,
subjective. Who won and who lost in the great Tet offensive against the
cities? I'm not sure. The Vietcong did not win by a knockout, but
neither did we. The referees of history may make it a draw. Another
standoff may be coming in the big battles expected south of the
Demilitarized Zone. Khesanh could well fall, with a terrible loss in
American lives, prestige and morale, and this is a tragedy of our
stubbornness there; but the bastion no longer is a key to the rest of
the northern regions, and it is doubtful that the American forces can
be defeated across the breadth of the DMZ with any substantial loss of
ground. Another standoff. On the political front, past performance
gives no confidence that the Vietnamese government can cope with its
problems, now compounded by the attack on the cities. It may not fall,
it may hold on, but it probably won't show the dynamic qualities
demanded of this young nation. Another standoff."
. . .
been too often disappointed by the optimism of the American leaders,
both in Vietnam and Washington, to have faith any longer in the silver
linings they find in the darkest clouds. They may be right, that
Hanoi's winter-spring offensive has been forced by the Communist
realization that they could not win the longer war of attrition, and
that the Communists hope that any success in the offensive will improve
their position for eventual negotiations. It would improve their
position, and it would also require our realization, that we should
have had all along, that any negotiations must be that -- negotiations,
not the dictation of peace terms. For it seems now more certain than
ever that the bloody experience of Vietnam is to end in a stalemate.
This summer's almost certain standoff will either end in real
give-and-take negotiations or terrible escalation; and for every means
we have to escalate, the enemy can match us, and that applies to
invasion of the North, the use of nuclear weapons, or the mere
commitment of one hundred, or two hundred, or three hundred thousand
more American troops to the battle. And with each escalation, the world
comes closer to the brink of cosmic disaster.
. . .
say that we are closer to victory today is to believe, in the face of
the evidence, the optimists who have been wrong in the past. To suggest
we are on the edge of defeat is to yield to unreasonable pessimism. To
say that we are mired in stalemate seems the only realistic, yet
unsatisfactory, conclusion. On the off chance that military and
political analysts are right, in the next few months we must test the
enemy's intentions, in case this is indeed his last big gasp before
negotiations. But it is increasingly clear to this reporter that the
only rational way out then will be to negotiate, not as victors, but as
an honorable people who lived up to their pledge to defend democracy,
and did the best they could.

from supporting to opposing the war. President Lyndon Johnson is said

2/8/1971 - Operation Lamson 719 (named
after an ancient Vietnamese victory over the Chinese) begins: fifteen
thousand inexperienced divisions of infantry of the Army of Vietnam
invade Laos. Their objective to penetrate twenty miles into hostile
Pathet Lao (communist guerilla) territory to the city of Tchepone,
thereby cutting off the Ho Chi Minh Trail (a complex network of roads
and jungle paths), which is the supply line between communist North
Vietnam and the Vietcong guerillas in South Vietnam. This first test of
de facto Commander-in-Chief Nixon's (Esq.) policy of 'Vietnamization'
(the replacement United States Armed Forces (private mercenaries) with
Army of the Republic of (South) Vietnam regulars) seems doomed from the
start as the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam estimated the
operation would require at a seasoned force of twice the size
kleptocratic (rule by thieves) dictator Nguyen Van Thieu was willing to
commit. But what is worse, Thieu has ordered the ARVN to withdraw once
it has sustained three thousand casualties.
- Operation Lamson 719 (named after an ancient Vietnamese victory over
the Chinese) ends: Republican (fascist/socialist) de facto President
Nixon, Esq., in a televised address to the nation, says 'Tonight I can
report that Vietnamization [the replacement United States Armed Forces
(private mercenaries) with Army of the Republic of (South) Vietnam
regulars] has succeeded.' The truth is Lamson 719 was miserable
failure. Not only did the ARVN fail to accomplish its stated goal of
cutting off and holding the Ho Chi Minh Trail (the supply line from
communist North Vietnam, through Laos and Cambodia, to the Vietcong
guerillas in kleptocratic (rule by thieves) South Vietnam, but it has
demonstrated that the top commanders in the ARVN, after over a decade
of training at the best military schools in the U.S., have apparently
been willing to apply very little leadership and military skill.
The failure of Lamson 719 was accompanied by massive anti-U.S.
demonstrations in Saigon, by anti communists who feel the eventual
withdrawal of U.S. armed forces will leave South Vietnam unprotected
against re-unification. The growing hostility made it nearly impossible
for U.S. Armed Forces to interact with the South Vietnamese people.
This sense of isolation soon lead many U.S. Armed Forces to turn to
illicit drugs. It was estimated by the Military Assistance Command,
Vietnam that even at the end of 1970 about one-fourth of the troops
were using drugs recreationally (usually heroin).
United States Army
units, during this period, frequently broke down into rival factions,
along racial and/or geographic lines, in which soldiers of African,
European and Hispanic descent; soldiers from the republic of texas and
the 'Deep South'; and soldiers from the Northeast and the republic of
california, would coalesce and make war on each other.
- Dewey Canyon III: former United States Navy Lieutenant (Junior
Grade) John F. Kerry, recipient of the Silver and Bronze Stars, and
three Purple Hearts, testifies to the senate foreign relations
committee about war crimes committed by United States Armed Forces
(private mercenaries), during the Vietnamese-American War/First
Vietnamese Civil War/Second Vietnam War:
told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut
off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and
turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at
civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot
cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged
the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of
war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the
applied bombing power of this country. "
. . . .
"In our opinion,
and from our experience, there is nothing in South Vietnam, nothing
which could happen that realistically threatens the United States of
America. And to attempt to justify the loss of one American life in
Vietnam, Cambodia, or Laos by linking such loss to the preservation of
freedom, which those misfits supposedly abuse is to us the height of
criminal hypocrisy, and it is that kind of hypocrisy which we feel has
torn this country apart. "
Postscript: The next day, Kerry led
a rally of one thousand Vietnam Veterans Against the War. At the end of
the rally many protestors their combat medals and ribbons, berets, ID
tags, photographs of deceased comrades, canes, and one artificial leg
at the Capitol Building. Although Kerry threw his ribbons, and some
medals, it turns out the medals belong to a patient in the Brooklyn,
new york, Veterans Hospital, and an Axis War (World War II) veteran,
neither of whom could make it to Dewey Canyon III. Three decades later,
as Democratic (socialist/fascist) senator of the commonwealth of
massachusetts, Kerry has his combat medals prominently displayed in his
office. Kerry caught the attention of Republican (fascist/socialist) de
facto President Nixon, Esq., who ordered the Federal Bureau of
Investigation to place him under surveillance.
