New York Democratic Senator Robert F. Kennedy delivers a speech in Chicago on February 8, 1968. He said that the recent Viet Cong offensive demonstrates that a U.S. military victory is "probably beyond our grasp" in Vietnam and political compromise is the only path to peace, in his strongest attack yet on President Johnson's Vietnam policies. He said, "It is time for the truth, time to drop the mass of official illusion" he said had been shattered by Communist attacks in Saigon and cities and towns all across South Vietnam. He addressed a book and author luncheon here. (UPI Photo/Files)
