Right on the money. Boucher was made LBJ and McNamara's scape goat. Boucher raised concerns about the ships E.D. capabilities as well. It's darn near impossible to scuttle a U.S. Navy ship. It's even harder when you don't have the means to do so nor destroy classified material in a reasonable time frame.
Although the man IIRC has since passed the Navy owes Boucher a major apology and the history books need to condemn all responsible for ordering that ship there to start with knowing it was a trap.
Two ships within months of each other under attack. One Ships Captain gets rewarded the other a Court Martial. Both situations were likely a direct result of the doings of one Lyndon Baines Johnson.
