Airplane Dean Rusk on Vietnam War

Comment: I received the following message from a friend.

Air War in Vietnam in a Nutshell

Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk was being interviewed on a CBS Program
called the 11 Year War. I was watching the program when the journalist
asked Dean Rusk about the rumor that the United States was providing the
(Targets in North Vietnam) to the NVN Government. That is when and where
I heard Dean Rusk make those comments -- I was stunned. That program is
archived and can be accessed. Essentially we were fighting that Air War
with both hands tied behind our back.

Here is my question. Did Dean Rusk give US targeting data to North Vietnam
each day prior to our air operations?

Maybe the commenter means "The Ten Thousand Day War" (that is, CBC, not CBS)? I can't find any "Eleven Year War" documentary.
