This document is one of several readiness reports of activity by the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV) after the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, in which the DRV attacked US Naval vessels.

This report shows that there may have been plans of another attack on Aug. 4th, 1964 against US Naval vessels after the first incident on the 2nd. It was later determined that the second attack on the 4th did not happen and this particular message was given as support that it did. This could be an example of how Intelligence can be manipulated to give support for an agenda.
