"The end of April of 1975 was...the whole Vietnam involvement in microcosm...Promises made in good faith, promises broken; people being hurt because we didn't get our act together. You know, the whole Vietnam War is a story that kind of sounds like that.
But on the other hand, sometimes there are moments
when good people have to rise to the occasion and do the things that need to be done. And in Saigon, there was no shortage of people like that."
As we began to contemplate
evacuation, the question, the burning question was, "Who goes, and who gets left behind?"
The broken promises:
President Nixon pulled out all the stops, and in a letter to President Thieu, he promised that if the North Vietnamese were to substantially violate the terms of the Paris Agreement, the United States would respond with full force. In other words, reenter the war.
McNamara: We were, under the terms of the Paris Agreement, committed to resupplying the South Vietnamese. ... They (Congress) said (To President Ford's request), "No more. No more troops, no more money, no more aid to the Vietnamese."
Captain Herrington (started speaking to us in Vietnamese): Nobody is going to be left behind. When you are in American embassy, you are in American soil. I promise, me and my soldier will be the last one leave the embassy.
