Video || Bill Clinton Claims He Ended the Vietnam War

Now that’s a pretty good day at the office for a draft dodger.

Bill Clinton was asked by some reporter how he felt about a White House aide saying John McCain’s vote on President Trump’s CIA nominee didn’t matter because McCain is dying.

You can see he didn’t intend to answer any questions, but when he hears this one he gets that little look in his eye and turns around. Too juicy a steak not to bite into it.

But this being Bill Clinton, he can’t say something about someone else without saying something about himself, and in this case trying to pump up his presidency which will, as he knows, be forgotten except for one thing. So he claimed credit for ending the Vietnam War. You know, whatever.

Clinton said:

If it hadn’t been for John McCain, I don’t think I could have had the ability to effectively end the Vietnam War, reconcile the Vietnam, get a full accounting for all the missing in action, and many other things. And they’re now our best ally in Southeast Asia.

Thank you, John McCain, for your service to your country, and your service to Bill Clinton.

Unfortunately, it was the North Vietnamese who ended the Vietnam War, on their terms.

    1. Well, after all, Al Gore, the VP then, invented the internet. So why not Bill Clinton ending the Vietnam conflict? Why the next thing you know John Kerry will claim he tore down the Berlin Wall. Hillary got shot at when she was in the middle east didn’t she?

    1. That is percent correct, that Congress cut funding. And our leaders failed to wage the war to win it. I didn’t mean to imply otherwise. Still, in the end, Vietnam dictated the result.

    2. I don’t even think Vietnam war ended. There’s cessation of hostilities and withdrawal of the US but I don’t believe there was a signed document that ended the war other than the Paris Peace Accord in January 22, 1973. I was in stationed in the Tonkin Gulf during the operation line backer II that got the North Vietnamese to agree to the Paris Peace Accord.

      1. Well Ray, there really isn’t anyone still fighting. There is no South Vietnam. Seems pretty much to me that it’s over. Old Navy myself, though I didn’t make over there.

  1. Bill Clinton was WORSE than a draft dodger. He received an induction notice and got an ILLEGAL deferment for being enrolled in ROTC when he was not enrolled. He got this due to Senator William Fulbright’s influence w/ Clinton’s draft board. So SOMEONE ELSE had to take Clinton’s place. Of course, as we all know, Clinton never showed up at the University of Arkansas’s ROTC program.

  2. That’s interesting. I was not aware there had been a full accounting of those still missing and unaccounted for in Vietnam. In trying to find the magic document with this information, I did read that an internal investigation into the joint POW/MIA commission found it to be inept, mismanaged and wasteful. Sounds about right, if the Clintons had anything to do with it. (Info from wiki and not verified independently.)
