I think the president at the time did condemn Ho Chi Minh for the war. – user1873 Feb 12 '14 at 9:33
I think the question asks whether it was ever an expressed mistake of the US government. – wbogacz Feb 12 '14 at 11:11
Courts don't have a say in the war. – DVK Feb 12 '14 at 18:33
This was a police action in an allied(french) state. I condemn the french for being such pansies as to pull out after they sucked the US in... does that count? I also condemn LBJ for being so blind as not to see what was about to happen. – Chad Feb 13 '14 at 21:59
@DVK courts can call a war illegal. – Anixx Feb 14 '14 at 3:46
