So who's the liar?

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS
(Off Camera) Finally, Mr. McDermott, before you left for Baghdad, you said the President of the United States will lie to the American people in order to get us into this war. Do you really believe that?

REPRESENTATIVE JIM MCDERMOTT
I believe that sometimes they give out misinformation. Lyndon Johnson did it in the Vietnam War. Both David and I were in that war, and there was no Gulf of Tonkin incident. [emphasis added]

Jim McDermott, Military Service - U.S. Navy Medical Corps, Lieutenant Commander, Chief Psychiatrist, Long Beach Naval Station, California, 1968-70. [emphasis added] (source)

Following graduation, Bonior joined the Air Force and was stationed in California. There he worked as a cook, slinging hash by day and attending night classes at Chapman University, where he earned a Masters Degree in History in 1972. After four years in the service, he returned home to Michigan and became an adoption caseworker and probation officer [emphasis added] (source)

Now does McDermott and Bonior not know that the Vietnam war was fought in Vietnam and not in California?
