piece (my emphasis):
On Wednesday night, President Obama will speak to the country about his
strategy for fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham. I wonder if
he’ll have a chance to see “Last Days in Vietnam,” which opened on
Friday. He would probably be struck by the historical irony that, like [President Gerald]
Ford, he must try to explain to Congress and a weary, sour public why
the U.S. should get involved again in a far-off, supposedly concluded
war that most Americans now view as a waste.
