"In the end, the study recounts, Secretary Dulles 's views (i.e. under Eisenhauer's presidency) were persuasive.
On Aug. 20 (i.e. 1954) the President approved a National Security
Council paper titled "Review of U.S. Policy in the Far East .
It outlined a threefold program:
1. Militarily, the United States would "work with France
so far as necessary to build up indigenous forces able
provide internal security."
2. Economically, the United States would begin giving aid
directly to the Vietnamese, not as before through the French.
The French were to be dissociated from the levers of command.
3. Politically, the United States would work with
Premier Diem, but would encourage him to broaden his government
and establish more democratic institutions.
With these decisions, the account says "American policy
towards post-Geneva Vietnam was drawn." The
commitment for the United States to assume the burden of defending
South Vietnam had been made." (p. 15)
