This is real….not a fantasy
By RICHARD L. MADDEN
NEW ORLEANS, -- The President, calling on the nation to develop an agenda for the future, declared today that the war in I*** was finished "as far as America is concerned."
The President urged the beginning of what he called "a great national reconciliation" and added:
"We are saddened, indeed, by events in I****. But these events, tragic as they are, portend neither the end of the world nor of America's leadership in the world. Some seem to feel that if we do not suceed in everything everywhere, then we have succeeded in nothing nowhere."...
The President made his remarks in a speech to more than 4,500 members of the student body of Tulane University, who greeted his appearance and speech in the campus field house with prolonged and enthusiastic applause, particularly his comment that the war was finished as far as this nation was concerned....
"Today, America can regain the sense of pride that existed before the war," the President said.
"But it cannot be achieved by refighting a war that is finished -- as far as America is concerned," he said.
Ooops......You probably guessed: It was President Ford.....not Bush. He was speaking in 1975 about Indochina, not Iraq.
