    In the late 1950s, the United States supported Vietnamese President Ngo Dihn Diem who was (A) a repressive leader who killed thousands of his own people, a Catholic (B) and he was not a communist (C).

    Hence, the correct answer is (D) All (A, B, C)

    Explanation:

    "Ngo Dinh Diem" was born in a noble family of Vietnam. His ancestors had converted to Roman Catholicism in 17th century. He was the first leader and President of South Vietnam after 1954 partition. He was initially very inspiring but then he became dictatorial.

    The US gave their support to Diem because US involvement was increasing when he was South Vietnam's leader. He was an 'anti-colonialist' and an 'anti-communist'. Also, he declared that he would cancel elections in the South, and this was supported by the US too. A vast number of his opponents were killed during his regime.
