Richard M. Nixon


What did Nixon do with respect to Vietnam?

President Nixon did reduce American troops in Vietnam, but he broadened U.S. involvement in the region by approving of secret bombing of Cambodia and Laos. He also sent in ground troops to Cambodia in 1970, and then began bombing in Laos in 1971. Critics charged that Nixon was “widening down” the war. In 1972, Nixon even authorized bombing in North Vietnam.
