Cambodia regularly charged that forces attacked targets, military and civilian, in their territory throughout this time period. I’ll leave it to contemporary scholars to unravel the truth/lack of truth of those claims. But, it’s quite clear that at this time the US was in possession of quite a bit of intelligence about North Vietnamese troop positions and strongholds in Cambodia which would have been difficult to derive without some cross-border surveillance.
Oh, I see. Because Cambodia said US troops crossed into its territory at some point, then John Kerry must have been there on Christmas Eve in 1968 … despite all the evidence to the contrary. Why didn’t I see it before?
Please. Try again, Atrios.
UPDATE: Here’s the latest from The Daily Kos. Get a load of the comments; the Kos denizens are looking for anything to cling to.
UPDATE 2: Atrios slings more mud. And still has no substantive response.
