Description
A carefully researched analysis by one who was in fact a participant -- a staff assistant to Senator Nelson (D-Wis.), who sought to amend the Gulf of Tonkin resolution to preclude use of U.S. ground forces -- Siff provides the first accurate account of how the political processes in the U.S. Senate allowed the executive branch to launch a major war, with basically no accountability to Congress. The actual reasons behind the escalation are coherently examined for the first time, with an emphasis on the role of the U.S. Senate
