    Part 2:

    McNamara Speaks about the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

    Gulf of Tonkin: McNamara admits "It didn't happen."

    To quote McNamara:

    So the single pretext used to justify the entire Vietnam war never happened.

    Part 3: History tells the tale

    A war brought about by an event that never happened, so admitted by the parties involved.

    So with all this historical background and past performance, what am I suppose to think of this?

    It comes down to a matter of trust and being able to have trust in those who hold position in our society. What are we to believe any more from our elected leaders and the 4th estate in the news media?
