Interview With Bill D. Moyers, 1981 [electronic resource]

by Richard Ellison and Bill Moyers
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Bill Moyers was Special Assistant to President Johnson for Legislative and Political Affairs and later become his Press Secretary. He describes a deep apprehension Johnson had about Southeast Asia immediately upon taking office - reinforced by advisers from the Kennedy administration who insisted he needed to deal with Vietnam. Nevertheless, he paid it little attention for his first year, particularly as he considered an escalation impossible in an election year. Moyers sources many of the failures in Vietnam not as a lack of American power and influence but as an inability for American leaders to understand what the North Vietnamese wanted. He closes by discussing the options presented to the president by Secretary McNamara, each of which reinforced Johnson's belief that there was no way to win the war.
