    But our involvement in Vietnam actually goes back to Truman and his Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. Too much to go into here, but if you have access to Stanley Karnow's "Vietnam" you'll get a better picture.

    Let's just say Eisenhower stopped the election and sent the first advisers, but he didn't start the policy.
    Remember, it was Dulles' misstatement that helped launch Korea.
