(45 years ago today), the head of U.S. Military Assistance Command Vietnam, Gen. William Westmoreland, assured the U.S. news media:
'I am absolutely certain that whereas in 1965 the enemy was winning, today he is certainly losing.'His declaration came just 2 months before the massive Tet Offensive on Saigon and cities. The United States-Vietnam War would go on for another 8 years and end without U.S. victory.
