Fact of the Day: War of Deception

While the Vietnam War was already in effect, a conflict known as the Gulf of Tonkin incident was so grossly exaggerated that Congress granted President Lyndon Johnson the authority to assist any South Eastern Asian nation that was considered under the threat of Communist attacks. With that the war against North Vietnam escalated.
