American Forum - Haunting Legacy: Vietnam and the American Presidency from Ford to Obama
Marvin and Deborah Kalb
September 30, 2011
11:00AM - 12:00PM (EDT)
MARVIN KALB and DEBORAH KALB, the father-daughter journalists, will present a compelling, accessible, and important history of presidential decision making on one crucial issue: in light of the Vietnam debacle, under what circumstances should the United States go to war? Marvin Kalb’s career covers 30 years of award-winning reporting and commentary for CBS and NBC News, including serving as host of “Meet the Press.” Deborah Kalb, a freelance writer and editor, has worked as a journalist in Washington for two decades. A book signing will follow their Forum.
