Dean Acheson's Speech to the National Press Club, January 12, 1950--Secretary of State Acheson's appearance at the National Press Club is where he gave a speech in which it appears he excluded South Korea from America's "defense perimeter." It is widely believed that North Korea invaded South Korea believing that the U.S. would not intervene based on this speech by Acheson. See the links to this historic speech.
