The donation was iade at a
time when there was growing
concern over oil imports, the

THE MEMO, dated Nov. 2t,
1969, was written by Gen. Earle
Wheeler, then chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff. It was in-
itialed by Laird.
Laird said the air strikes were
necessary to clear Cambodian
sanctuaries used by the Nortl
Vietnamese and Viet Cong,,

Ie said secrecy of the opera-
tions was requested by officials
of the State Department whom
he did not name.
"I DO NOT want to hesitate
to confirm completely that I
authorized these strikes," Laird
said. He said the initial plan was
taken to the National Security
Council and approved by him af-
ter "total and complete discus-
son at the highest levels of the
White House."
"Their secrecy was not of great
concern to the Defense Depart-
ment, but to the State Depart-
ment," Laird said.
Laird was asked if while he
was defense secretary there was
ever a "deliberate effort t- mis-
lead the American people"
LAIRD replied:
"Na. I don't believe so. There
are certain things in military
operations that must be handled
on a secret basis."
