McNamara’s Morons – The Low Intelligence Soldiers Used as Guinea Pigs in the Vietnam War

Project 100,000

In 1966, Robert McNamara announced Project 100,000, not so much to meet the escalating requirements to keep America in Vietnam, but to spare America’s poor and otherwise disadvantaged from, in his words, “idleness, ignorance, and apathy” by giving them a chance to “earn their fair share of [America’s] abundance” and “return to civilian life with skills and aptitudes.” Basically, McNamara claimed that one of the primary goals of Project 100,000 was to solve societal issues in America.
