- Senator Edward Kennedy Speech (10/15/1970)
- Program Description
Radio. Senator Edward Kennedy delivers speech calling for the end of the war in Vietnam (10/15/1970). Address delivered at Somerset Hotel at meeting of the World Affairs Council of Boston. Kennedy asserts that the war is not winnable, in the conventional sense of war, by either side; that to seek a compromise is the only solution to the crisis, the alternative being the senseless deaths of more American troops; and that all American troops should be withdrawn by the end of the year. This is Kennedy's second appearance before the Council, his first occurring "nearly two years before."
