Lessons Learned: The Seizure of the USS Pueblo

by James M. Lindsay
January 25, 2012


We’ve introduced a new video series here at CFR.org—“Lessons Learned.” Each week I recount an historical event with an eye toward teasing out what lessons it might hold for foreign policy today. We’ve already done episodes on the Ludlow Amendment and JFK’s inaugural address. This week the topic is the seizure of the USS Pueblo on January 23, 1968.  I hope you enjoy it.

Next week’s topic is the Tet Offensive.
