NY Times: Lyndon Johnson's Vietnam

This is terrible.  I mean all those articles and not one sentence about NSAM 263?  Or Johnson's reversal of that policy?

At a time when there are now about seven books dealing with this subject in depth and they all agree about Kennedy's intent to withdraw?

I look at the upcoming PBS Ken Burns special with trepidation.  Especially with what PBS has done on the JFK case of late, and that  special they did on Dallek's book for the fiftieth.

On a somewhat related note, Ken Burns, the PBS baseball guy, is coming out with his multi-part series on Vietnam this fall.  I tried reaching out to him through the PBS website to remind him to make it fair about Kennedy's NSAM but had no luck - all of their email addresses there are dead.

We shall see how fair it is in the early going of the series:
