Ted Kennedy addressing Lawyers Against the War: Medium close-up at podium: "At last the ultimate and cynical reality of our policy is beginning to dawn on the American people. The only possible excuse for continuing the discredited policy of Vietnamization and the war...President's intention to play his last card for peace closer to November 1972...to benefit the election campaign. How many more American soldiers must die? How many more innocent Vietnamese civilians die?" to end war in 1972 not 1971.
