Walter Cronkite dead at 92
It is utterly fitting that two of the men responsible in great measure for losing the war in Vietnam died within weeks of each other. Robert McNamara, who died on July 6, was a man I loathed and despised with all my heart. He was the direct cause of the unnecessary deaths of so many American service men and women in Vietnam because of his cowardly and mendacious advice for the prosecution of that war. (Par for the course for Democrats.)
The other, Walter Cronkite, died today.
Although he will be lionized by the self-serving state-run media, let there be no doubt that his reporting -- and remember that there were no alternatives other than two networks and newspapers back then -- was key to our defeat in Vietnam.
I have nothing further to add.
