Yesterday, in a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Kansas City, Missouri, George W.Bush equated leaving Iraq with what happened in Vietnam following the U.S. pullout there.
Sen. Mike Gravel already publicly addressed this falsehood on two separate occasions — the first time when Sen. John McCain invoked Vietnam and Cambodia on the Senate floor and the second time in Sen. Gravel’s poignant opinion piece, which was titled “Dying in Vain in Vietnam and Iraq” and was posted in an earlier blog entry here.
