Sens. Morse and Fulbright

Sen. William Fulbright (left) is shown with Sen. Wayne Morse during a meeting of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1966. After the incidents in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964, Morse and Ernest Gruening were the only senators to oppose a congressional resolution giving President Lyndon Johnson wide latitude to prosecute the war in Vietnam. Fulbright helped pass the resolution but soon came to believe Johnson had lied about the Gulf of Tonkin.
