Post Date ,  12:am
DescriptionMr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, distinguished Members of the Congress:

I have come here tonight to report to you that this is a time of testing for our Nation.

Abroad, the question is whether we have the staying power to fight a very costly war, when the objective is limited and the danger to us is seemingly remote.
