Tracing a president's steps in escalating war, this edition of the Journal looks back to Lyndon B. Johnson's deliberations on U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Using a compilation of excerpts from taped conversations in which LBJ wrestled with what to do in Southeast Asia, Bill Moyers draws a parallel between two very different men united, across time, by their role as commander in chief. "Granted, Barack Obama is not Lyndon Johnson, Afghanistan is not Vietnam, and this is now, not then. But listen and you will hear echoes and refrains that resonate today," says Moyers.

The only thing Moyers ever excelled at in life was being an FBI snitch.
