Diem Government Overthrown in Vietnam
The Vietnamese military, with the backing of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), overthrew the regime of Ngo Dinh Diem. The U.S. backed the action since the Administration felt Diem was both corrupt and not pursuing the war against the Communists with enough vigor. U.S. support for the action effectively deepened the U.S. commitment to South Vietnam.
