McNamara Testimony Denies
Need To Bomb, Mine Haiphong
of Defense Robert S. McNamara's
insistence that bombing or mining
Haiphong, main supply port of
North Vietnam, will not shorten
the war or cut off enemy supplies
was underlined in testiiony made
McNamara made it clear that
he plans to continue restricted
bombing of North Vietnam.
He testified Aug. 25 before the
Senate preparedness, subcommit-
tee and publication of his testi-
mony follows that of several un-
informed military chiefs urging
the mining or bombing of Hai-
The subcommittee earlier made
public excerpts of McNamara's
testimony which played down the
importance of Haiphong, saying
supplies could be brought in over
the beach if it were knocked out.
Both he and President Johnson
insist that the differences be-
tween the military and civilian
chiefs on the question are slight.
In the testimony made public
yesterday, McNamara, in heated
exchanges with members of the
subcommittee, made a string of
denials to senators' questions and
No Loss Reduction
It denied that heavier or earlier
bombing attacks on the North
would have reducediU.S. casual-
ties in the sporadic but bitter
ground war in the South.
McNamara also agreed - that
there has been no change in the
basic bombing pattern, even
though numerous targets have
been authorized for first strikes
He also denied that he is fol-
lowing a "no-win policy" or that
U.S. forces might as well "throw
up their hands" and get out.
But the Pentagon chief said he
knows of no way to do this mili-
tarily or politically.
McNamara estimated that last
year Russia supplied North Viet-
nam with about $60 million in aid
while Communist China provided
about $150 million.
Near the end of the testimony
McNamara told Sen. Stuart Sym-
ington (D-Mo): "I don't believe
there is this gulf between the mil-
itary leaders and the civilian lead-
ers in the executive branch."
"The area of controvery that
we have been dealing with deals
wit a very, very, tiny part of the
total air war in the North, and
this is why the chiefs and I feel
there is no great gap between the
military leaders and civilian lead-
ers," he added.
