A familiar ring

"We have adopted a plan, which we have worked out in coöperation with the South Vietnamese, for the complete withdrawal of all US combat ground forces.

"As South Vietnamese forces become stronger, the rate of American withdrawal can become greater.

"I have not and do not intend to announce the timetable for our program."

President Richard Nixon, 3 November 1969
