Bale Post pointed out that there
are 289,000 Vietnam wounded, in-
cluding amputees and paraplegics,
many of whom will remain hospi-

Hits Airing of Views
by Leila Khaled on CBS
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Jew-
ish War Veterans in a letter to
the Columbia Broadcasting Sys-
tem protested its permitting Leila
Khaled to "justify her criminal
behavior with distortions and lies"
on its nationally telecast "Sixty
"At the very least," wrote Na-
tional Commander Albert Schloss-
berg, "CBS should have granted
equal time on the same program
for w refutation and solid fact."
Miss Khaled participated In the
successful hijacking of a TWA
jet to Damascus in September,
1901 and in an abortive attempt
to hijack an El Al jet over
Britain Sept. 6.
In an interview, taped at head-
quarters of the Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine in
Beirut, she claimed that the wave
of hijackings in September, which
made some 300 airline passengers
and crew members hostages of
Palestinian terrorists, was intend-
ed to forestall the Jarring peace
She claimed that in that respect
the hijackings were successful even
though her own attempt to take
over an Israeli plane was foiled.
Miss Khaled, who appeared in
uniform and spoke heavily accent-
ed English, denounced U. S. aid
to Israel and referred to that coun-
try as "the 52nd state."
Schlossberg said in his letter,
"To permit Khaled to perform her
historionics on free air time was
to mock an agonized world's hor-
rified reaction to the deadly antics
of a gang of hoodlums dedicated
to continuous bloodshed in the Mid-
