Vietnam War and The Tet Offensive 45 years ago

45 years ago this week, the Vietnam War was political topic #1 as the country entered another presidential election.

Tet was a huge Viet Cong defeat.  The US forces fought back and defeated the incoming forces.  Unfortunately, the Viet Cong took over the US embassy and it became a huge media event back home.

Tet destroyed the Johnson presidency.  It broke the back of public opinion as more and more Americans began to question the war and casualties.
