Kenneth Keating

Wednesday, July 29, 1964

This episode is from the WNYC archives. It may contain language which is no longer politically or socially appropriate.

From card catalog: Senator Kenneth Keating speaks on US foreign polity, Vietnam, etc.

"This is the age of slogans." Exaggeration in political campaigning. Advertising vs. politics. Test Ban Treaty with France. Things aren't black and white. Resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis didn't solve all problems. Neutralization of Laos was an "instant victory" that vanished in guerrilla warfare. That illusion of victory gave Communists time to build up forces. Disagreement in the government about what to do abroad.
