Question: Anyone been able to disprove The Urban Legend view of General Giap

I heard recently on the Rush Limbaugh show this quote.

"What we still don't understand is why you Americans stopped the bombing of Hanoi. You had us on the ropes. If you had pressed us a little harder, just for another day or two, we were ready to surrender! It was the same at the battles of TET. You defeated us! We knew it, and we thought you knew it.

But we were elated to notice your media was definitely helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender. You had won!"

After I used this quote I have been informed that this memoir is listed as a Urban Legend.

Can anyone help me prove that this "False status" in itself is an urban legend?
