"Bond it to the fullest extent of the law. I don't care if she's a tender, young, female famous movie star that is treason. Which I say Well, really, I'm still here. And where are you all you know, you did apologize for it. Yeah, it was a terrible, thoughtless. Irresponsible thing to do. I mean it. I did it. I It was not an active gun. There were no planes in the air. Nothing was happening. But I realized that the image belied everything that I you know that I am I believe in Nonviolence. Civil disobedience. I don't believe in shooting and dropping bombs. So it was a terrible mistake, and it was thoughtless. The reason I bring that up is not to relitigate something from 50 years ago. But is that in this current Time. There's a lot of conversations in activism about the idea of having to be perfect. You have to be perfect all the time. And I think what I find interesting about that moment and I hope you can speak to it. Is that you're allowed to make mistakes that you're allowed to apologize and still be an activist? Yes. First of all, never let perfect get in the way of good. The fact that I went to North Vietnam and brought back photographic evidence of the bombing and that it attracted attention to the bombing is was more important than the bad, which was the fact that I was photographed on the anti aircraft carrier. How are you not? I mean, there's a certain conversation right now. That's especially when musicians speak up. You hear spongy space Six. Stick to music or want to stick to acting. If they're speaking of about these things. What do you say to these people? Well, first of all, forget him. Just don't even pay any attention. But here's the deal.

"He was just worried that I was going to get in trouble like celebrities had in the fifties when they spoke out. Have you ever been a member, The Communist Party? I should like to see what you had. Well, you will. Pretty soon you know, I I'm a person of privilege. And when I realized that what I wanted to do with my life was to put my body on the line for issues that I felt were important that I could help with. The more that they attacked me. The more I dug in my heels and move forward with results, But put your body on the line is important there because it wasn't just making speeches and not to say that there's anything wrong with just making speeches or wasn't just donating money. I mean, most famously, you went to North Vietnam. He went to annoy and you when you did that. What were you hoping to accomplish this by going there? I had. The only reason I went was to prove that the United States was trying to destroy the Earth and dykes off north Vietnam that it's like Holland. It's below sea level. The Red River delta is sinister dikes were destroyed, according to the Pentagon papers. Hundreds of thousands of people would die from drowning or starvation and We were bombing the dikes and they started stock about a month or two after I came back, and I'm I'm proud of that. But that that's why I went. You know when you come back. I mean, there's the famous photo of you sitting on an anti aircraft gun, smiling with North Vietnamese soldiers that seemed a bit tactless. Uh, what were you doing behind an enemy gun? I didn't think at the time about how it would be received, and I can understand why people were very confused by that. Soldiers received me there and sang me a song and.

"So there's that my next step is to just pull her out of the public school. Take that money because California allows you. To home school. They give you the money, I think was 3000 bucks per kid. You know this? They take that money that your that normally they would give to a district to cover your kid. They give it to you for you to homeschool. And yes. Um, you're you're seeing interesting homeschooling absolutely skyrocket because nobody wants their kid. To be handicapped by this. I feel really bad for people who are seniors in high school this year, because that's that is a real kick in the balls because this is the year yourself should be bringing in for the wind. On Suddenly everything you've known about classrooms and how you learn now you're doing it at home, eh? So I feel bad because this is the case I make for this is one leper the first purpose of school. Is to teach the kids write. The second purpose is to teach them. How to learn you go to school to learn how to be in school, and there's a reason that kids go to a place and they were close and they're clean and they're groomed and they sit and they face forward. They pay attention to the adult at the front of the room. Who's supposed to know the material? There's a reason for that. That is how we teach And so we learned that's what we teach. We don't do cave drawings and charcoal anymore, and even then you'll have to pay attention to the Zogg and how to hunt a bison. Kids Ahron learning the skill of learning that's that's the real problem. Because of my amazing ability to look in the future. I know that there's going to be in the future school district's With entire parallel programs for kids who fell out of the habit of learning. Um, So anyway, there is that. Wolf, a journal with a extensive article about how how bad it looks for Afghanistan, so we'll get to that and third hour by the way. For war. Alex. This is the 50th anniversary of a pretty remarkable event during the Vietnam War. There was this one time That Green Berets, Special forces guys got in helicopters flew into North Vietnam. To raid a POW camp to liberate between. They thought 55 or 60 American POWs. Instead, they wound up probably making the Chinese stop assisting the North Vietnamese because Well, you have to listen to the third hour, but spoiler alert. One helicopter landed at the wrong place that turned out to be a barracks for Chinese servicer missile crewman. About nine green Berets killed over 100 Chinese in about eight minutes, got back on the helicopter and then went on with the rest of the mission. And so the we'll we'll get to that in the third hour, but this is the 50th anniversary. Of that. All right. When we come back Afghanistan on then I have a audio thing for you. I didn't play. I forgot to play this last week. But I'll tell you, I'll settle up when we come back and see dark secret place on twitch.

Ah, contract, but they're kind of afraid views, but the rest of them were all built by Bell helicopter helicopter text who had a controlling interest of Bell helicopter text. Lady Bird Johnson. Imagine that. Yeah, and then Brown and wrote, gets ah, the contract to dredge Cameron Bay and build this big giant Porter, Cameron Bay and they, you know they were out of Houston. They're LBJ's buddies. Which is why I put the space center in Houston to Brandon Route built Space Center in the middle of nowhere down there. Uh, because of LBJ. So if there was a huge amount of incest now when they were building this is interesting when they were building came one day with steel. Came from China, Red China, the concrete Came from North Vietnam. Concrete mix for building this base came from North Vietnam. By way, the Philippines. You know we picked it up in the sale of danger Shipping Philippines but it was made in North Vietnam. Now we're bombing them into the stone age and they got extra concrete to export it test so we built a base. It's just when you started digging into this after what I did. I got really interested in this. So I wrote the SEC. And I said, Look, I want to know who had the controlling interest of Kreisler, who was building tanks and trucks who had the control unit Kreisler, who had the controlling interest of Bell helicopter Textron, who had to control an interest of, um Ah, the colt, Firearms and some others that I got in there, And I also wrote the, uh uh, Department of the Army and the department.

And then this girl says, Well, I'm gonna have to transfer this upstairs, She said some of this is above my pay grade. I'm thinking. What do you mean, like this is ancient history?

You know, the FBI and all the stuff you have to say. Yes. I still want it. And can you expedite it? Because I got a deadline. Well, they want you to miss your deadline, then you don't need the information. My deadline was self imposed. It was flexible. Finally, this gal calls me up and she says, Mr Roberts said, um, they This was on my desk and I've been looking at this and said, This is really strange watches all those records. Have been destroyed. Imagine that. I said, What do you mean? I said, we got records going back to how to shoot a mule in World War. We got records that go back to the civil War to help tell us how many cartridges unending German carries a certain battalion. And we don't have the records who controlled the major corporations to provide the war material for Vietnam. Now. I said it was a, uh, some, you know, Cleaning House Records Act that they came up with that they just decided to get rid of a lot of the old stuff. And I get okay. All I need to know. And these are all the people. The JFK got on the wrong side of which ended up leading to the ascent. His assassination not by Oswald, but a contract team in Dealey Plaza in Dallas on November 22nd 1963 right, Craig Correct Now in your book, you identified that there were A huge number over 100 witnesses that died. Under fairly mysterious circumstances. Correct Rogers 115. I think it was and that that that book is was a follow on to kill zone. That book was JFK, the Dead witnesses. What I tried to do is when I was working on on the kill zone book I was trying to find, you know, Primary resource is the eyewitness is peoples and new things, People. You know police officers who was there that day and I was every time I tracked one down. They were dead. And in particular, I know and I I would really love to have you back. I know you're busy guy, but it's so fascinating. All the research you because you are the leading expert in this. I want you to talk to our listeners In our last couple of minutes here about Captain Michael grows, who was in charge of the honor Honor guard at Kennedy's funeral. What happened to him? And why do you believe it happened to him? Well, I don't know why it happened, but he was young. He was in really good shape. He was military. I mean, he was part of the honor guard in Washington. I mean, that was the elite of the elite in the Army. You know when it comes to, you know, dog pony shows, and he just shortly after that the candy was was buried. He's eating dinner at home and just falls bid. At the dinner table. Somebody had poisoned him. 2120 some year old guy, right? Yeah. Perfect health. So why would they kill him? Craig? Well, he saw something or he knew something, and I'm not sure what it is, and we'll never know. There's so many like that. Did he? Did He talk about the fact that they were practicing for a presidential funeral Three days before Kennedy was assassinated, But yes. Yes. Yeah, it could have been in. Uh, hey, it didn't click with him until after the assassination because they practice for dignitary. Funerals all the time. Ah, and but that particular thing was was coincidental to him at first. That they were getting ready for presidential funeral. Ah, and then all of a sudden bang. They did one You know, I did it and he started getting suspicious.

Robert Caro on How He Does It

"Robert Carroll joins us now he is the Pulitzer Prize. Winning author of many books. New Book is called working researching interviewing and writing. He's also the author of the years of Lyndon Johnson four volumes of them thus far and the powerbroker Robert Moses and the fall of New York Bob. Thanks so much for being here. Pleasure to be here all right so everyone has been greatly anticipating a volume five of the years of Johnson. But instead you have written this other book working researching interviewing writing. Why did you decide to do this? Ever since the powerbroker I kept myself out of the book. I don't think the word I appears in there many times. If soon as the book came out people started asking me. What was it like ten of you Robert Moses and I realized that I should have put in something to tell people what that was like so for like forty five years. I've been hearing that question and people ask me what it's like to work in presidential libraries were. Can you find out from interviews? This isn't the adviced anybody but it's sort of. I said we'll I WANNA give people some glimpses into how I work so. I took time out to do this book now. I'm back doing the volume. I mean it's an interesting question about interviewing Robert Moses because you had read five sessions which women seven sessions with him. Which was very different from the Johnson. Biography where he was dead already for several years. Before you could get started and I'm curious you write about it a bit in working what the difference was like for you. Writing the book writing a biography of a person who was still alive versus writing a biography of someone who was already gone in one sense. It's great to write about someone who's still alive because you get to meet Moses. Didn't talk to me for the first couple of years of the book. Then we had seven interviews. Soon as I started asking questions. Pamela the interviews were over but they will long sessions and I really got to look at him with Johnson. You felt okay. I came along just too late. He had died just three years before was great about him was that he died so young he would have been only sixty seven when I started. He darted sixty four that everyone was still alive. He had I think twelve people in Johnson City High School. When he was there they were all there to be viewed. But you can't make up for not meeting and talking to the person writing about you just can't do feel that absence and working on the Johnson. Yes you do everything you can to overcome that you know you interview the people closest to him over and over and over again constantly asking them what was he like. If I was standing next to you what would I see him doing? So you try to get a feeling of him now. We have these telephone transcripts where you hear him talking hundreds and hundreds of hours you can listen to him talking and see how he deals with people and how he gets what he wants from people. That's always amazing to me. Has that changed the way that you've been doing your research having access to those types a change the writing of history in general like on the Gulf of Tonkin incident which has been sort of mystery. What really happened there. How many attacks were there? On our destroyers. You know that led Johnson to launch these launch bombing attacks on North Vietnam. Now you actually hear the communications between Robert McNamara. The Secretary of Defense Cincpac the admiral at Honolulu and the commander of the fleet. That's an in Viet Nam. You hear this and what was really going on in real time the other aspect of your interviewing that. I thought was so interesting that you write about in this new book working is the delicacy of interviews and especially when you get to touchy subjects. And they'll you didn't interview Johnson for the book did Interview Lady Bird and tell the story about how you and when you approached the subject of Johnson's longtime affair with Alice Marsh. Well when Johnson is in the Pacific during World War. Two year allowed easing Australia. You're allowed one telephone. Call the senator from Texas. Just Johnson has to decide whether to run again for the House of Representatives or to run for senator. I'm going through all the correspondents and suddenly in the middle of it. There is a telegram from someone sewing. Alice I've never heard of Alice. She appears in no book and it says Lyndon everyone else that happened to me in the White House. Everyone else thinks you should run for the Senate. I think you should run for the house. Please try to cool love Alice. I said WHO is Alice. Who was the person that he makes the only one telephone call? And who's giving political advice which he follows shortly after that? So that's you know. An example of going through the papers by luck her sister and best friend show up at the Johnson Library and ask to see me and I go down to see them and they say you know we wanna tell you about a woman named Alice Marsh. We don't want to portray to some Bimbo. She was really very important in Johnson's life. And they told me the whole story of this Lauren and significant relationship and his life. So how do you then? Ask Lady Bird. You know panel. That's the only interview I ever had in my life where I couldn't bring myself to look at the person I was interviewing. Alice was a small town girl. She turned herself into the brilliant Washington. Hostess Brilliant Brilliant Salons and she came from a little town called Morlin. Now no one would go to the mall. And unless they were looking for inflammation analysis a little town in the middle of nowhere and I never know I went up there and we learned about her. And how remarkable she was but all of a sudden we have a mutual friend. Who lived in Morlin? Who calls me in a panic and says the bird in Texas? Everybody Calls Lady Bird Bird. Bird and always. You've been in Marlin. So she knows you know about Al. Assad said well that had to be if it doesn't concern me but her secretary then shows up at my desk in the reading room says Mrs Johnson would like to see you out at the ranch this weekend. We had been meeting in her office so we sit down at the dining table. She's at the head of the table. I might her right. Hand my stenographer's notebook like like the one you use is is down on my right hand taking notes and without preamble. She starts to talk about Alice Quiz. How elegance she was how sophisticated she was how she taught. Linden things and everything that she taught him. He followed the rest of his life. You don't hear these lawn when she met him. He was this new congressman very awkward with Lorne Gang Leo Arms. She said turn them into an asset. Always wear shirts with French. Cuffs and very nice cufflinks. So when people's attention is cool to them it's called in in a in a good way. She told him. We're kind of Necktie to favor. Countess Myers Tie. But most of all at crucial elements in life. It was her advice that he followed an in a number of cases one in particular. It's not exaggerating. Very much to say she saved. His career is takes a moment to tell. But it's it's interesting his early careers financed by a very fierce huge Texas contractor. Herman Brown Brown and Root and Herman was prepared to keep financing his Roy and in return Johnson was getting huge contracts for Brown and root when all of a sudden they had a falling out Lyndon Johnson was getting them authorization to build a dam which they wanted but Linden wandered low. Rent Housing Project built in Boston in what was a very poor Mexican American neighborhood. The houses in that neighborhood were owned by Herman Brown. The tenants were paying rent to him. They were very profitable and he was enraged at Linden wanted to condemn them for his housing project and his chief lobbyist and his chief lawyer talked. Instead you know Herman was about to turn on Linden and when Herman turned on you he never turned back when Alice here is about this and invites them both down to Greatest Stadium Virginia. She sits down at her table. And says why don't you just compromise give Herman the damaging winds and the land and all of a sudden everything was okay. So Lady Bird starts talking not only about her elegance. She says the quotes are in the book. She was so sophisticated so beautiful. I remember her neck succession of wonderful beautiful dresses and me in well not so wonderful. And and then she said you know Lyndon Basically Linden always followed Alice's vice during that whole interview I have to say my head. Just stay down and I took notes. I couldn't look at her so that was done. The next week we went back to ordinary interview she just launched into it without you. Even though I you know I sometimes think I know something about politics. I'm really glad I don't have to write about. Women never understood why she did

"So the Astros were to help right you have to plan the war anymore now we could write about why it all went wrong I was still thinking of this as something that we'd had a right to do and might be doing again somewhere and obviously we have not been successful so the question was what can we learn from our past experience while he worked on the study Ellsberg was still seeing top secret communications about the war and one day in nineteen sixty eight he saw a memo from commanding general William Westmoreland that raised his deepest fears I knew there was a possibility they're using nuclear weapons it was being discussed in the White House and I also knew that was more it was asking for a couple hundred thousand more man basically to invade North Vietnam which would bring the Chinese and which would mean nuclear war don't show the top secret memo to senator Bobby Kennedy who was running for president he didn't think he was out of bounds here afterall Kennedy had been Attorney General for his brother JFK so clearly he had security clearances a few days later a story about the troop request showed up in the New York times someone had leaked it says it wasn't him and he doesn't know who it was but the story blew up and Democrats in Congress started openly turning against Johnson's war escalation discount Ellsberg thinking about the power of leaks could leaks slow down the war my idea was shell one a day so that the president would know that somebody with very high actions which I had at that time was leaking he thought that if Johnson did decide to escalate the war again he probably wouldn't tell the American people how many troops he really wanted that's what he had done for three years at this point live every time the ball when he was actually sending this time he would know that somebody who knew what he was doing was going to leak and he couldn't do it she quickly that was my idea.

And here's the thing with that Willie when it comes to closing costs. Let's say you have enough money for the down payment, which could be whatever you want it to be for the most part three percent or more three percents. Typically, the minimum down payment on a conventional loan. Let's say you have the money for that three percent down payment on a conventional loan, but you don't have enough for the closing costs. Well, what we can do instead of giving you the four percent interest rate. We can raise the interest rate, which gives you a credit which will help cover the closing costs. And a lot of people don't know how that works. So you're telling me that if I'm shopping for two hundred thousand dollar home at three percent, and I'm gonna put six grand, plus the closing costs down North Vietnam. In theory. Yes, by if we raise let's say using that same scenario, you just gave hypothetically if we were to raise that from three percent to say three point seven five, then we would give you.

"A little bit about Vietnam, which was not talked much about yet. We'll talk more about it. On thursday. Richard nixon. Richard Nixon was a brilliant statesmen. He really was. And he was desperate to disentangle the United States from Vietnam wanted to get America out of that war. It wasn't at all clear. How to do it in party wanted to get out of it because he wanted to pursue a very vigorous anti-soviet? Foreign policy. He was always. I mean, Nixon Nixon since he came to Washington is forty six was a anticommunist which didn't mean he couldn't play with the communist when he needed to like, for instance, when he established relations with China. Right, quite quite dramatically. But he wanted to get out of the at Phnom for all kinds of reasons. Americans didn't want to be there anymore. Either. He had an ally. His side. I'm sure you won't know who it was. It was Henry Kissinger. Also, brilliant, brilliant statesman, possibly not as brilliant as he himself thought. And thanks, but still very very effective. If you were the secretary of state, you hated him because he was the national security adviser, and he just did Enron's around the State Department whenever he wanted to whenever Kissinger thought, we should be doing something. He just did it and never told anybody and they found out later on with restorative embarrassing. If you were the secretary of state, and it was Nixon sorry with Kissinger really who are related what came to be called, the so-called Nixon doctrine. And I think it's Cincinnati and everyone has to have a doctrine Nixon really did have a doctrine Nixon Kissinger doctrine, but what it was was effectively a rejection of containment. Remember, we talked a while back about the idea of containment that we the United States could contain communism everywhere. And this is how the United States has got involved in all these little. Awards including nam, which turned out not to be a little more at all. And Nixon's the Nixon doctrine announced that although America would reward it's friends with economic aid, and even with weapons sales that it was no longer going to dedicate its own troops to combat communist growth anywhere in the world, but mainly in Asia and Africa and Latin America, so it would send money it would send weapons it might send advisers, but that was how we got into Vietnam in the first place in the fifties. So that was maybe not a good idea, but they weren't going to send American troops anymore. To fight other people's wars. He had at the same time a three pronged approach to envy at Phnom were honorably. No one wants to end the war dishonorably. So I think that pretty much everybody was on board for ending the war honorably, but this meant trying to preserve an independent pro United States government in South Vietnam. This was very difficult because the North Vietnam rationally winning the war and you'll see that they do. In fact, pretty much the minute. The United States takes its troops out of Vietnam. The north north winds, but this is still the goal. The goal is to have a pro United States government in South Vietnam and Nixon tries to accomplish this through a series of meetings in Paris between Henry Kissinger and the North Vietnamese on American history. A look that the year nineteen sixty eight university of Chicago, professor Jane daily. He also wants to do what he calls the Nazi this word. Right. Vietnam station. The war. In other words by replacing by pulling American troops out and replacing them with South Vietnamese troops trained by the Americans armed by the Americans. But in other words, trying to get our troops extricated from Vietnam itself. And by expanding the air war. And this is something you've probably seen images of or heard about it becomes extremely controversial. And the idea of to expand the air war is to force North Vietnam to compromise. To basically, we talked. We talked already and we read slaughterhouse five talking about the way that war were that's targeting civilians becomes acceptable in World War Two. And this is basically what's happening now in Vietnam. And they say usually, there's a military base or something there's a military target of some sort but in truth with they're doing is they're targeting civilians and killing a lot of them. These tactics. Don't work the bombing of North Vietnam. Does not actually and the war. Does not particularly demoralized the North Vietnamese. And as this happened as the bombing expanded you get a massive antiwar movement in the United States seven hundred and fifty thousand people participated in the November moratorium in nineteen sixty two in in Washington DC, which is still the largest antiwar demonstration in American history. It may be the largest demonstration at all still maybe not maybe last time of last year's demonstrations were bigger, but it's the largest anti war demonstration in American history. And really nothing like it has been seen in one thousand nine thousand nine hundred seventy two people weren't populating the mall of the closest thing would have been Martin Luther King's March on Washington, but that's really quite small compared to this. That's about a hundred thousand. People I think on simply on the mall, and this is three quarters of a million of American people come to Washington and March the antiwar movement at this point also split and it turned violent. So between the fall of nineteen sixty-nine and the spring of nineteen seventy so not very many months, right? Maybe six six months there were at least two hundred and fifty bombings and they were directed at ROTC buildings on college campuses at draft boards at draft centers at federal officers, and at the headquarters certain corporations that were considered to be particularly involved in the war two hundred and fifty bombings in six months is a lot of a lot of bombings. It's just think how we felt a week ago when bombs that didn't go off were sent in the mail. If bombs are going off around us every week, we would become I think very unnerved and people did and the goal of these bombings. You're asking yourself. Why where people doing this who was doing? It was young people doing it. Why were they doing it? And the goal is they put it was was called to bring the war home. They wanted to force Americans do experience the war that was being endured on a much much greater scale by the Vietnamese. In other words, they wanted to bring home some of the terror that other people the Vietnamese were experiencing why have an arg government drop bombs on them. A member of the weather underground organization, which was literally underground it was one of the organizations that split from the students for a democratic society, which is rooted in the nineteen sixties. This is the member of the weather underground explaining and she says we felt that doing nothing in a period of repressive violence is itself a form of violence. If you sit in your house live, your white life, go to your white job allow the country that you live in to murder people into commit genocide, you sit there, and you don't do anything about it. That's violence. This had very little effect on the government in nineteen sixty nine in the spring of sixty nine. Well, actually, it probably response was fall of sixty nine to the spring of nineteen seventy or the bombings. It's the spring of sixty nine that Nixon ramps up the bombing campaign against the North Vietnamese. And he does something very dangerous. He secretly in other words without informing congress which had the right to be informed. You secretly extended the bombing to the Viet Cong basis the North Vietnamese army basis and also to supply routes in neighboring Cambodia and Laos. So the vehicle was being supplied literally, by communists in Laos and in Cambodia, and it was very difficult. The American government kept trying to cut off that that lane of of supplies into North Vietnam with bombing. It was very it was unsuccessful. And so in April of nineteen seventy Nixon sent South Vietnamese and American troops across the border into Cambodia. This was in an illegal. We're not at war with Cambodia. There was no authorization from congress to go to war with Cambodia. They just sent troops across the border into Cambodia and this strategy also failed to this lodge. The North Vietnamese from Cambodia who continued to be supplied from Cambodia it did have the effect of. The intended and undesired effect of supporting local communist insurgents in Cambodia. As response to this and the resulting commu Rouge. That's the Cambodian Communist their victory in Cambodia helped by the North Koreans encouraged by the United States was catastrophic for the Cambodian people. Two million of whom fell victim to the genocide that was perpetrated by the communist as part of their what they call their rural relocation program. It's hard to do this in secret. The president got found out. It was revealed again, it's hard to it's hard to go to work as another country with no one noticing. Immediate protests in congress. Respond to this in the media and on college campuses nationwide. And this is this is when this is when college campuses explode. With with students, you know out in the quads out wherever protesting the American policies protesting the war protesting the draft. Y'all would be eligible for the draft depending on which year it was and depending on when you graduated so. Think about that one for second. It's not a good moment for young people. You can see why you're out you'd be out there too probably protesting at Kent state university in Ohio you've seen this image. I'm sure. Kent state was a public university with a largely working class white student body and students burned a copy of the constitution. And then burn down the campus ROTC building. So not not good behavior. If you're the president of the university, but that's what they did as a protest. The governor of Ohio the nounce the student says he said the worst type of people we harbor in America, and he dispatched national guard troops to quell the unrest. There were they weren't rioting. But there were a lot of people out, and this is one of the most tragic moments frankly in in the whole student movement because what you get there is you have nineteen year old national guardsmen who are unnerved by nineteen year old students throwing rocks at them, and they shoot them. And they kill the kill four students at Ohio State. They also kill another two people who had not participated in the riot at all the protests at all, but who found themselves within the two mile range of the guardsman's one bullets. So the shooting something that has a two mile range, and they managed to hit two people beyond from where they were the response to the Kent state learners fast and furious within a few days one and a half million students nationwide have walked out of class fifth of the nation's colleges and universities have closed their doors temporarily. Eleven days after this. Mississippi State troopers opened fire on a dormitory at Jackson state, which is an African American college killing killing two people and other two students..

"Go ahead. Thank you, Mr President you. I just wanted to clarify when you talk about what you would be willing to give up all of the sanctions for are. You still thinking that you want North Korea to give up everything to do complete verifiable. I don't to say. Yeah. It's a good question. I don't want to say that to you. Because I don't want to put myself in that position from the standpoint of negotiation. But you know, we want a lot to be given up and we're giving up, and we'll have to we'll be helping them along economically us and other many other countries. That's the president from last hour the press conference in Vietnam with. Kim Jong Hoon it has ended. There is no deal. Sometimes look I I think the president overall. I love the fact that they didn't oversell as they did last year. And we call the monitor said, look don't oversell this thing there is there is no great deal here. There's no deal to denuclearization. I thought this time they were much more upfront with the world on this about the challenges that they have sometimes with the president just gets on a narrative and just will not let it go. I mean day in and day out when he talks about North Korea being an economic power and the unlimited potential the economic power of North Vietnam as if that's where Kim Jong Hoon wants to go to well, of course, he doesn't because he doesn't he would want would be a vibrant economy where people are making a lot of money in their forgot political power because then he's dead, and it doesn't serve our our allies, certainly a South Korea. If you're if you're overselling something if it's this big promise to the world, and and you're making. A lot out of, you know, clearly, no progress just yet. And it also is a I think since a very long message or very big message in strong message to Kim Jong Hoon that. Yeah. No. We're not there yet. And we're not going to. You know because you mentioned earlier before we heard from the president. But clearly they recognize the the problems that were created over the years past administrations and too many concessions along the way, right, which that's something.

Visit Cleveland Clinic dot org slash heart care, the choice of Vietnam to host this week summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong own is full of symbolism like North Korea. Vietnam is a one party communist state that fought bitterly against the US since that war. Vietnam has made peace with the US and prospered now Kim is seeing the results first hand from Vietnam. Michael Sullivan has more. In nineteen sixty seven during what the Vietnamese call the American war North Korean pilot secretly fought alongside there.

Some of the North Koreans who died were buried here about an hour from the capitol where caretaker fund Dow opens the gate to a modest memorial fourteen headstones the names of the dead etched in Korean on one side in Vietnamese on the other he lights some incense and says a quick prayer. The memorial doesn't get many visitors these days, he says the bodies were actually repatriated more than a decade ago. But the headstones remain Donner the dead. I didn't lie. He's hitting the middling. They were foreigners. They came to fight for our country, and they died for country. So this memorial is to remember their sacrifice. But all that the caretaker says is in the past more than fifty eight thousand American lives were lost with over three million. Vietnamese debtor missing. But the US and Vietnam are now frenzy says having normalized relations twenty years after the war's end that decision says, economists laid along Sean still baffles visitors. From young young the North Korean delegation. All the time us me. Why did you memorize relation to the US you live in fighting for so long? How did you do it? The simple answer the advisor to several Vietnamese Prime Minister says was necessity like North Korea. Now postwar Vietnam was crippled by economic sanctions and trade embargo by the US something had to give I have told him. We never forget the pass. But now we look to the future and Vietnam must develop the economy much industrialized. And it's the best way to have an animal and friendly relation to the US and that policy has helped make Vietnam economy. One of the fastest growing in Asia over the past two decades and best of all perhaps from dictator Kim Jong UN's perspective. He would see development of the economy under the one by the ruling congress party rule. One knock Zhao is. Director of the institute for policy law and development studies in Hanoi.

"I don't believe the American command or the South Vietnamese military believed was possible. I'm talking to Mark Bowden who's the author. Most recently of way, nineteen sixty eight a turning point in the American Warren, Vietnam, can you explain you touched on it a moment ago. But can you explain how it was that the North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong? Hong were able to intimidate that they could pull off this kind of victory against the I guess overwhelming might we would think of it as the overwhelming might and the overwhelming intelligence capabilities and and everything else that the United States had on its side. Well, I don't think frankly, LARs that North Vietnam was intimidated by the American forces. It's certainly true that America could deliver more firepower more rapidly anywhere in the battlefield, then they could and had far superior weapons and an endless stream of of resupply, but they had advantages of their own and that is that there was tremendous popular support for their movement, particularly in the rural areas in the areas outside of south Vietnam's big cities. And I think they, you know, and they were also frankly more experienced infantry than the American forces most Americans who fought in Vietnam went over there for a year or a year and a month and Mark their calendars until they came home. Whereas the Vietnamese who were fighting many. Any of them had been fighting for generations. They'd fought against the French they'd fought against the Chinese. The Americans were just the newest enemy. So they had a tremendous amount of experience they were very competent as infantry forces. And they also believe they had a measure of popular support which could keep their movements sacred. Did the American commanders recognize that that superiority, no, they didn't you know, it's one of the big failings of our military, and the which was to consistently underestimate the capability of the enemy the ability of Hanoi to move men and material of coaching and trail, which was a jungle trail in the western part of the country often crossing over into loud. You know, I think the United States didn't believe them capable of moving so many men so many supplies, but they were extremely resourceful army, and they demonstrated in way in particular, how effective they could be.

"In the north and in the south in Vietnam Thuan are the differences. Is there any resentment because of the war between the north and south? No, no, I will tell you though, culturally. There is a difference in just like when you go to California, and you got to Texas and go to Georgia. There's accents. And there's dialogues that you can tell from just hearing someone if they're north or southern my father was actually from North Vietnam as young man and disagreed with the principals and the ideologies of men, so he moved to the south. And that's where he really stuck on his principle of not believing of communism would work. And so when you look at the country today, there's not a whole lot of difference where you could go from the south and go all with north and back down again without any interference a one. I'm sure you've seen all the Vietnam movies, whichever ones they are whether it's platoon or hamburger hill or full metal jacket. What is your reaction to those films? Any do you think that they're unrealistic? Unrealistic. They give people the wrong idea. What what's your reaction when you see movies like that? I was the best movie that really depicts it. Well is when we were soldiers by Mel Gibson. I battle first major battle of Vietnam. That's correct. What I appreciate about the movie also gave it on both sides that lives were lost on both sides for those who fought for and against and they had families and a much touching scene that the genera- Marcus dead was giving the letter back with a photo back to the family. And it depicted the the enemy if you want to call them now to fought for their country, but they believe is right at not being animals and just kill people. But really believing and fighting for what the hell true when you see protests, like the so-called dreamers are who are demanding that they have a pathway to citizenship and feel that in my opinion that they have rights that should be protected given what you went through came.
