The Loss of Trust. By Thomas Sowell 
Excerpt: Even when Lyndon Johnson told us the truth at a crucial juncture during the Vietnam war -- that the Communist offensive of 1968 was a defeat for them, even as the media depicted it as a defeat for us -- we didn't believe him.

More than 50,000 Americans lost their lives winning battles on the ground in Vietnam, only to have the war lost politically back home.
