The author reflects on the silence of U.S. President Richard Nixon about the possibility of a south Vietnamese invasion of North Vietnam. A bill was introduced by senators Walter F. Mondale and William O. Saxbe prohibiting the participation of the U.S. in any invasion of the north. Representative Paul N. McCloskey declared in his speech that Nixon had exceeded his constitutional powers in the war. The author cites the opinion of an aide of former President Lyndon Johnson regarding the war.
