June 7-12, 1965.
The two principal
topics discussed during this visit to Washington were further
U.S. troop deployments to South Viet-Nam and the so-called Acheson
I had two
discussions of the Acheson political track, one with Acheson himself,
and the other at a meeting with George Ball, McGeorge Bundy, Bill
Bundy, and Acheson. One important point established was that the
plan was applicable only to a situation where the DRV/VC had become
convinced that they could not win by their present tactics.
