Lucas: Biden needs to answer for mistakes in Afghanistan

Boston Herald

"How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?" That is what anti-Vietnam War veteran John F. Kerry asked President Richard Nixon in 1971 at a Washington hearing on the gut-wrenching Vietnam War. Maybe now, in the wake of the disaster in Afghanistan, Kerry could pose the same question to his friend President Joe Biden. He could ask, "Joe, how did you ask 13 young men and women to die at the Kabul airport for your mistake?" He has willingly committed one of the biggest blunders in U.S. foreign policy history.



Trump Isn't Nixon

Slate

They planned for this bombing halt, and Henry Kissinger picked up news of it. Others picked up word of it in Washington, and they told the Nixon campaign. And Nixon, afraid that he was going to be the victim of a dirty trick and that Johnson was acting only out of political motives, got Anna Chennault, who was an old China lobby hand, to go to the South Vietnamese and say, "Hold off. Our guy's going to win, and you'll get a better deal if Nixon wins." Like I said, bits of this were leaked by the Johnson forces because he was tapping the South Vietnamese Embassy and the presidential palace in Saigon, but most of it was sealed up quite efficiently by Johnson because he thought it would be very destructive to the world war effort if this all came out.


'Deepfake' Nixon Video Discusses A Moon-Landing Disaster That Never Happened

#artificialintelligence

It's a lot harder to recognize fake videos than you can imagine, including this President Richard ... [ ] Nixon deepfake about Apollo 11. Fifty-one years ago this week, the first moon landing took place. Two astronauts from Apollo 11 walked around on the lunar surface for a couple of hours, changing space exploration forever. Most people around the world accept this statement as truth, but there has always been an underbelly of society who (wrongly) think the moon landing in 1969 never happened. A new project shows the danger of how easy it is to spread fake news, through the power of a video related to the first moon landing.
