Ngo Dinh Diem

  • Ngo Dinh Diem was the ruler of Vietnam from 1955 to 1963
  • He was born in Vietnam in 1901
  • Americans were very unhappy with him because he angered the South Vietnamese people with his methods
  • A military coup ended up overthrowing him in 1963 because a CIA operative gave them $40,000 and promise to not protect him if they would overthrow him
