Abstract:

The withdrawal by President Johnson from the Presidential race of 1968 represented a strategic psychological victory is examined by assessing the nature of the psychological threat posed to the American people in the early phases of the Vietnam War 1964-1965. It is developed that the Presidency was probably the only agency capable of countering the psychological threat which existed in 1964-1965. The public papers and speeches of President Johnson are examined for that period to assess his understanding of the threat and his explanation of the developing Vietnam War to the American people.
