(Studio) Questions of personality played role in Vietnam negotiations.
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(DC) President Johnson has resisted advice to get tough with South Vietnam. United States Dep. Ambassador to Saigon, Samuel Berger, may have blundered. In October 31, meeting with Nguyen Van Thieu and Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky and Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker, Berger told Thieu if he insisted NLF not be separate entity, United States wouldn't support South Vietnam. Thieu said he thought Berger was ambassador to South Vietnam not Hanoi. Bunker tried to reassure Thieu.
