I would like to know what "hedge" and "imponderable" mean here. Does "hedge" mean to limit, moderate their assertions? And imponderable here is a question that is very hard to answer?
"Though the consensus was that we should refrain from using atomic bombs in Indo-China, the experts often hedged on their assertions, making the point that we were in an “unusual” war and that there was no telling how it would end. One imponderable that was outstanding had to do with our current pullout from Vietnam."
