41 years ago today in 1975 American helicopters were landing on the roof of the American Embassy in Saigon South Vietnam, desperately trying to evacuate American personal as troops from North Vietnams regulars surrounded the city.
That was 7 years after President Lyndon Johnson had brokered a peace treaty between the Americans and their South Vietnam forces and North Vietnam. Negoiations that would be subverted for the political gains by Richard Nixon.
Richard Nixon WAS A TRAITOR, his treachery would result in the additional deaths of 40 thousand young American servicemen.
Nixon's own records show for certain that in 1968, as a presidential candidate, he ordered Anna Chennault, his liaison to the South Vietnam government, to persuade the leaders of South Vietnam to refuse a cease-fire being brokered by President Lyndon Johnson.
Nixon's sabotage of the Vietnam peace talks were confirmed by transcripts of FBI wiretaps. On November 2, 1968, LBJ received an FBI report saying Chernnault told the South Vietnamese ambassador that "she had received a message from her boss: saying the Vietnamese should "hold on, we are gonna win.' 'Nixon was able to get a series of messages to the Thieu South Vietnam government making it clear that a Nixon presidency would have different views on peace negotiations.'
The South Vietnamese did 'hold on,' the war proceeded killing another 40 thousand American boys. Nixon did win, changing forever the face of American politics—with the shadow of treason permanently embedded in its DNA.
Later it was revealed Henry Kissinger—then Johnson’s adviser on Vietnam peace talks—prior to the peace talks, secretly alerted Nixon’s staff that a truce was imminent. The double dealing treachery by Kissinger, who in 1973 Kissinger would be given the Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating the same settlement he helped sabotage in 1968.
The treason came in 1968 as the Vietnam War reached a critical turning point. President Lyndon Johnson was desperate for a truce between North and South Vietnam.
President Johnson was livid. He even called the Republican Senate Minority Leader, Everett Dirksen, to complain that “they (NIXON) oughtn’t be doing this. This is treason.”
“I know,” Dirksen’s said feebly.
Below the live conversation in which President Johnson calls out NIXON for TREASON.
