Summary
In February 1966, at the height of the Vietnam War, J. William Fullbright, chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held hearings on the war, hoping that they could be used to pressure President Johnson to halt escalation and seek a negotiated settlement. About a year and half later, Fullbright's colleague, John C. Stennis, chair of the Preparedness Investigating Subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee, initiated his own hearings on the war, seeking a more aggressive conduct of the war. Suggesting that these hearings "forced a far more public and more extensive debate of U.S. war policies than President Johnson preferred," Fry (history, U. of Nevada at Las Vegas) offers the first full-length comparative treatment of the hearings.
