Article Tells Kissinger' Tactics; State. Department Probes Leaks

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Who leaked the State De-
partment secret papers pur-
porting to show Presidents
Nixon and Ford pledged to
Arab leaders that the
United States would push
Israel back to its pre-1967
war borders and transcript
of Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger's intimate conver-
sations with Israelis and
others, was being investi-
gated Monday by the De-
partment itself.

ment spokesman, volun-
teered that "insofar as any
State Department officials
provided Edward Sheehan
with information based di-
rectly on memoranda of
conversation, this was unau-
thorized.and a serious error
of judgment and discipli-
nary action will be taken."
Funseth acknowledged
that Sheehan, a former U.S.
Foreign Service officer who
served in Cairo and Beirut,
who wrote a 2,100-word ar-
ticle for "Foreign Policy"
magazine on Kissinger's di-
plomacy, met with Kissin-
ger perhaps once or twice
for about 30 minutes and
spoke with others in the
department, but he would
not name them. He said he
would look into precisely
how many times and for
how long Kissinger actually
met with Sheahan.
Funseth replied that
"we won't take discipli-
nary action until we be-
lieve it is merited." He

said that insofar as Shee-
han was briefed on classi-
fied information "this is a
gross violation." He said
"the Secretary was aware
of it and certainly not op-
posed" to providing Shee-
han with information on a
background basis, a factor
that Funseth noted is fre-
quently done.
Asked who will determine
disciplinary action if the
Secretary is involved, Fun-
seth said "his superior —
the President of the United
States." But Funseth indi-
cated Kissinger was not
implicated in revealing se-
cret materials.
Funseth said "we respect
the confidentiality of diplo-
matic conversations and
that remains our firm pol-
icy." When he was asked
whether the probe extended
to the National Security
Council, the Central Intel-
ligence Agencies and em-
bassies in Washington, Fun-
seth said "my
understanding is- we are
concerned with what hap-
pened in this building."
It was recalled that twice
in the past year President
Ford took the extraordinary
action of directing the
State Department publicly
to rebuke Israel for the re-
ported leakage in the Israeli
media of U.S.-Israeli discus-
sions.
In the Sheehan article
more than a score of ex-
tracts of transcribed mate-
rials involving more than
a score of extracts of tran-
scribed materials involv-
ing Arabs and Israelis
were published in which
Kissinger's diplomatic
skills are demonstrated.
According to the article,
"How Kissinger Did It, Step
By Step In the Middle
East," Nixon made "sig-

Sy n agogue Named
Historical Landmark

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Central Synagogue, a Moor-
ish-style structure housing
a Reform Congregation in
Manhattan's affluent upper
East Side, was officially
dedicated Sunday by Gov.
Hugh Carey as a national
historical landmark.
The turreted building,
built in 1872, was desig-
nated a landmark by the
U.S. Department of Interior
in 1966. It is the oldest syn-
agogue in continuous use in
New York City.

Israel is a long way off so it makes
sense to make a stop on your way to
Tel Aviv. And there's no better place
to stop than in the heart of Europe—
Frankfurt, Germany. You can rest,
relax, shop, do a little business or
rent a car and do some sightseeing
in Europe's most beautiful scenery:
the Rhine Valley, the Black Forest,
the majestic Alps.

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
A Torah rescued from Iraq
was presented to the Magen
David -Sephardic Congrega-
tion comprising families
from Syria, Lebanon, Iraq,
Egypt and other countries
of the Middle East and Med-
iterranean.
The presentation was. by
Judge William C. Levy,
president of the Jewish
Community Council of
Greater Washington. The
antique Torah, written on
parchment, had been at the
Spanish Portuguese Syn-
agogue in London since its
rescue from Iraq. .

nificant promises to the
Arab chiefs of state" that
"involved the American in-
terpretation" of Resolution
242 during his Middle East
trip in June, 1974 when he
met with Egyptian Presi-
dent Sadat, Syrian Presi-
dent Hassad and Jordan's
King Hussein.
"President Ford reaf-
firmed Nixon's position on
the .1967 frontiers to Sadat
last June In Salzburg,"
Sheehan claimed.
Concerning Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger's
position, Sheehan wrote:
,"On the territorial dimen-
sions of 242, Kissinger has
commonly been accused of
making contradictory prom-
ises to Arabs and Israelis."
He added "But, in fact,
such duplicity is difficult to
establish . . . Certainly Kis-
singer/ allowed the Arabs to
think he favored complete or
substantial Israeli with-
drawal."

Sheehan quoted Sadat
as having told him
(Sheehan) "I ha'iie assur-
ances from Kissinger," on
total withdrawal but
Sheehan said, "this may
have been Sadat's wishful
exegisis of 'Mr. Henry's'
conondrum." Sheehan re-
ported that "according to
an Israeli journal" Kissin-
ger told American Jewish
intellectuals on Dec. 3,
1973 "that Israel would
not have to withdraw to its
1967 borders but stressed
that Israel would be ob-
liged to return "sub-

stantial territories."
Regarding the alleged
Presidential remarks
claimed by Sheehan, the
State Department said that
it "is not going to comment
on alleged conversations
between the President and
other leaders.
