Hindsight Foresight is 20/20

Bill Moyers highlighted on Friday's episode of 'Bill Moyer's Journal' audio of a 1964 conversation between President Johnson and his National Security Adviser, in which Johnson confides that he was gravely concerned about our Vietnam policy. "I don’t think it’s worth fighting for and I don’t think we can get out. And it’s just the biggest damn mess that I ever saw," he said.

He went on to escalate the war anyway and it lasted another 11 years.
