Scope and Contents note

Giving a speech to an unidentified audience, journalist Arnaud De Borchgrave makes an argument claiming that disinformation originating from North Vietnam played a "major role" in the U.S. defeat in Vietnam. A combination of propaganda, disinformation, and irresponsible journalism influenced Congress and shaped foreign policy decisions. After the 30-minute speech there is a brief discussion session.
