The Pentagon Papers

President Lyndon B. Johnson managed to keep his lies about the Vietnam War well-hidden and sealed until a military analyst leaked all the records that were exposing the president’s decisions about the war to the New York Times in 1971.

The Pentagon Papers were actually a top-secret Department of Defense study that was in charge of documenting the extent of America’s political and military involvement in the Vietnam war, from 1945 until 1967.

However, President Johnson was only one of the many presidents that were named in those papers, including Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and John F. Kennedy. They were all involved in misleading the United State’s involvement with Vietnam.

  2. EXCELLENT ARTICLE. I HAVE HEARD OF MANY OF THESE DURING MY LIFE AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER. THE WORST ONES ARE THE POLITICAL LIES THAT PROBABLY INFLICT MORE DAMAGE AND SUFFERING TO ALL MANKIND THAT ALL THE OTHER CATEGORIES COMBINED. MY FATHER TOLD ME OVER SIXTY FIVE YEARS AGO THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU LIKE ANY GIVEN POLITICAL FIGURE, YOU CAN NEVER TRUST ANYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS. HE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN AS HE WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED IN LOCAL POLITICS AT THE LOCAL AND STATE LEVEL AND WAS PRETTY MUCH DISGUSTED WITH THE SYSTEM IN HIS LATER YEARS.

  3. HItler was right! Jews were and still are the enemy of society and now globally. They own every centural bank in the world, news stations, Hollywood, TV shows and all to control and manipulate the world.

  4. I am having trouble understanding how the 1919 Black Sox scandal qualifies as a “lie,” or the Cuban missile crisis.
    That’s two of the first three: time to quit.
