Before Ike, Truman loaned the French $1.2 billion to finance their war. And before that Truman failed to heed MacArthur's advice to stop the French from reimposing colonial rule in Vietnam. Our venture in Vietnam was minor under Truman, a little worse under Ike and JFK, and a catastrophe under LBJ.
