โฃUntil 1968, Walter Cronkite believed what his government told him about the Vietnam War. He was an old-school journalist, a patriot, a man who came of age covering World War II as a wire-service reporter and then taking over as the anchor of โ€œThe CBS Evening Newsโ€ at the height of the Cold War. Like most journalists of his generation, he embraced the fight against communism and understood why the United States had intervened in the war raging in Vietnam.

When heโ€™d visited Vietnam on a reporting trip early in the war, heโ€™d been annoyed by the attitude of the young reporters who seemed to be โ€œengaged in a contest among themselves to determine who was the most cynical,โ€ he wrote in his autobiography.
Cronkiteโ€™s nightly newscasts helped shape public opinion about Vietnam, which became known as โ€œthe living-room war,โ€ in the words of Michael Arlen of the New Yorker. Until 1968, network news operations tended to edit out the blood and gore and avoid direct criticism of military operations while American lives were on the line. There was no government censorship, but negative news reports infuriated President Lyndon Baines Johnson, and he didnโ€™t hesitate to let the networks know it.

โฃThat had been the case in August 1965. CBS News correspondent Morley Safer and his colleagues had followed Marines into a hamlet named Cam Ne, which was allegedly infested with the communist guerrilla fighters known as the Viet Cong.
The Marines briefly encountered sporadic gunfire, which Safer later described as friendly fire.

The Marines found no Viet Cong or firearms. Following orders, they burned down the hamlet. Saferโ€™s report showed Marines using flamethrowers and Zippo lighters to ignite the thatching on the huts amid wails of despair from Vietnamese women and children.

โฃThe day after the report aired on the CBS Evening News, President Johnson called network executive Frank Stanton, according to a book Safer wrote many years later.

โ€œHello, Frank, this is your president.โ€

โ€œYes, Mr. President.โ€

โฃโ€œFrank, you trying to fuck me?โ€

The T-54 tank was used in force in early 1972. The T-54 has a modified Christie-type
suspension. The GAZ trucks on the Ho Chi Minh trail came from the Ford-built Gorki plant.
The ZIL trucks on the Ho Chi Minh trail came from the Brandt-built plant. Both plants were
equipped with new American machinery while the Vietnamese War was in progress. The
amphibious PT-76 tank is manufactured at Volgograd--in a factory built by eighty U.S.
firms. This is called "peaceful trade" by the mystics in Washington.
As the material presented in this book will show, the "arsenal for revolution" was built by
Western firms and has been kept in operation with "peaceful trade." When all the rhetoric
about "peaceful trade" is boiled out, it comes down to a single inescapable fact--the guns, the ammunition, the weapons, the transportation systems that killed Americans in Vietnam came from the American-subsidized economy of the Soviet Union. The trucks that carried these weapons down the Ho Chi Minh trail came from American-built plants. The ships that
carried the supplies to Sihanoukville and Haiphong came from NATO allies and used
propulsion systems that our State Department could have kept out of Soviet hands--indeed,
the Export Control Act and the Battle Act, ignored by State, required exactly such action.
The only other route for these supplies was by rail across Siberia and China. But Soviet
locomotives and railroad-operating equipment have also been traced to U.S. and European
