Abstract:

Walt Rostow served as Special Assistant for National Security Affairs for Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. In this capacity, he played a significant role in shaping U.S. policy in Southeast Asia. He discusses his optimism for the war through 1967, and even more so after the Tet Offensive. Mr. Rostow describes the positions of fellow administration insiders such as Clark Clifford, Dean Rusk, and the Wise Men. He reflects on Lyndon Johnson's decision not to seek reelection, and the decisions to pursue peace talks and to halt bombings in Vietnam. He gives his opinions of what ultimately went wrong in Vietnam, and the impact that the Vietnam War has had on the United States.
