From 1964 to 1968, John Negroponte was Second Secretary in Saigon; from 1968 to 1969, a member of U.S. Delegation to Paris Peace Talks; and from 1970 to 1973, a member of the National Security Council staff. He describes the mood in Paris in 1968 as euphoric, thinking the negotiations for peace with the North Vietnamese would be quick. He discusses President Nixon and Secretary Kissinger's thinking about the negotiations in the context of China and the Soviet Union. He describes the character of Le Duc Tho, who secretly met with Kissinger to help advance the Peace Accords. Negroponte goes into detail about the issue of the withdrawal of North Vietnamese troops from the South.

Defending an open, global, secure, and resilient internet by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

Over the course of the last four decades, the Internet has developed from an obscure government science experiment to one of the cornerstones of modern life. It has transformed commerce, created social and cultural networks with global reach, and become a surprisingly powerful vehicle for political organization and protest alike. And it has achieved all of this despite -- or perhaps because of -- its decentralized character. This vision, however, and the Internet to which it gave rise, is under threat from a number of directions. States are erecting barriers to the free flow of information to and through their countries. Even Western governments do not always agree on common content standards -- the United States, for example, is more accepting of neo-Nazi content or Holocaust denial than are France or Germany. Other countries' efforts to control the Internet have gone far beyond limiting hate speech or pornography. Iran, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and others have considered building national computer networks that would tightly control or even sever connections to the global Internet. State and nonstate actors, moreover, now regularly attack the websites and internal systems of businesses. Most of these attacks are for theft -- cost estimates of intellectual property losses range as high as $500 billion per year. Other activities are related to sabotage or espionage. Hacking and defacing websites or social media feeds is a frequently used tool of political competition, while destructive programs such as Stuxnet are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Such activities can be expected to become more commonplace as critical systems become more interconnected and financial and technical barriers to entry for cyber activities fall further. A balkanized Internet beset by hostile cyber-related activities raises a host of questions and problems for the U.S. government, American corporations, and American citizens. The Council on Foreign Relations launched this Task Force to define the scope of this rapidly developing issue and to help shape the norms, rules, and laws that should govern the Internet

The Department of State's Office of the Historian in the Bureau of Public Affairs convened a conference September 29-30, 2010, on U.S. policy and the war in Southeast Asia, 1946-1975, with special emphasis on the years of greatest American involvement in the conflict in Vietnam. Featured speakers at the conference included Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton, Dr. Henry A. Kissinger and Ambassador John D. Negroponte, participants in the Vietnam policy process, and the late Ambassador Richard C. Holbrooke. The conference showcased and commemorated the completion of the Indochina/Vietnam War documentary histories prepared by the Office of the Historian in the Foreign Relations of the United States series. In approximately 26 volumes, the Office of the Historian has printed over 24,500 pages of policy related documents. Transcripts and videos can be found on the Office of the Historian website at http://history.state.gov/conferences/2010-southeast-asia/videos-transcripts. Dr. Kissinger defended the Nixon Administration's Vietnam War policy, stating that "most of what went wrong in Vietnam we did to ourselves" and that he was "absolutely unreconstructed" on this point. Ever the realist, he argued that a key lesson from the war must be that when the United States goes to war it must do so as a united country and with a "global strategic analysis that explains to us what the significance of this [going to war] is." He called the conference "an extraordinary, moving experience in my life." Ambassador John D. Negroponte, similar to the other speakers, focused on lessons learned from the war. The central one, he concluded, "really goes to the question of Iraq and Afghanistan and many subsequent experiences for me, but I guess it's pretty simple. Be careful before you take the first step, because once you get in, then you just--you lose a little bit of control about the next ones and the consequences. And it becomes harder to decide to disengage." Ambassador Holbrooke's career started in Vietnam--his first posting as a Foreign Service Officer--and was an experience that influenced his thinking throughout his career. In Holbrooke's speech, he reflected on this experience, concluding that "our goals in Vietnam did not justify the immense costs of the war. Nor do I believe that success was denied to us because of domestic events and lack of patience on the part of the American public." In short, "success [in Vietnam] was not achievable. Those who advocated more escalation or something called, 'staying the course,' were advocating something that would have led only to a greater and more costly disaster afterwards." The program included a panel on the role of the media on the Vietnam War to explore the impact of the press on public opinion and United States policy. Marvin Kalb moderated the panel, which consisted of journalists Morley Safer, William Beecher, and Edith Lederer, all of whom reported from Vietnam or about the Vietnam War, as well as the late Barry Zorthian, former Director of Media Relations at U.S. Embassy Saigon. Succinctly summing up the subject, moderator Marvin Kalb said: "I think that you have to have lived on Mars to have missed the central role that the media played during the Vietnam War." Other panels featured thought-provoking presentations by leading American and international scholars on topics such as force and diplomacy, counterinsurgency and pacification, the United States and its allies, and the war at home. Aided by the recollections of participants in the policy process such as Dr. Kissinger and Ambassadors Holbrooke and Negroponte, by documents in the Foreign Relations series, and by presentations of the most recent research by scholars, this conference provided a special opportunity to re-examine the formation, development, and consequences of United States policy in Indochina and the Vietnam War for America and the world. Those in attendance broadened and deepened their knowledge and understanding of the war in Southeast Asia, as will those who read and study these videos and transcripts online at the Office of the Historian website.--Publisher description
