Truman Held to Blame for
Getting U.S. in War

To the Editor:

President Truman, acting on the spur of the moment, without approval of Congress, before the United Nations could take any action, got us into the Korean war. But, this time it was too late for the President’s secretary to call the reporters and tell them that the President reversed himself; or that the President did not mean what they meant he meant. Now he can’t get us out of the Korean war.
