sorry -
He's a white male. He won't be allowed to emmigrate to the states - unless he can work the political asylem thing - which he will have a problem doing because he is a white male, etc.

Uncle Walt Cronkite was a big fat liar.

My personal opinion is that Kronkite should have been shot as a traitor.

In case you hadn't noticed, the US Marines WON the Tet offensive in Vietnam. They WON the battle of Hue. They STOPPED the Communists killing more of the people of Hue when they siezed control of the city and started to liquidate the "Enemies of the Revolution".

Kronkite coming in afterwards and seeing the devastation (instigated by the communists against a defenseless city and at the most sacred time of the Vietnamese year) concluding that the War was unwinnable gave major succor to the anti war movement in the west. He failed to understand the victory (both military, psychological and moral) that the Marines had won.

Sure, the fighting was long, hard and bloody but as Nathan Bedford Forrest so succinctly put it "War means fighting, and fignting means killing". The Communists picked a fight that they comprehensively lost. But the traitor Kronkite denied the victory, gave comfort to the Communists and was, I believe, instrumental in the final surrender (I won't say defeat) of the American forces in Viet Nam.

If that isn't treason, then I'd be interested in learning what is ...
