Note: I will be putting these all on one page sometime tomorrow, but I thought I'd post them as they trickle in for those who are interested.
Quotes from Senator Byrd from my video tape of yesterday's U.S. Senate hearings (as broadcast on CSPAN):

Let's go back to that war in Vietnam. I was here (referring to the Senate). I was one of the Senators that voted for the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. Yes! I voted for the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. I'm sorry for it. I'm guilty of doing this.
I should have been one of the two, or at least I should have made it three Senators who voted against that Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, but I'm not wanting to commit that sin twice!
And that's exactly what we're doing here. This is another Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. And I'm not going to vote for that this time. No! Don't count me in that!
