a statement prepared for delivery on House floor Tuesday he said they also told him that U.S troops who carry unloaded weapons inside the DMZ would be unable to obtain ammunition from a facility well out of the area in the event of a Shootout at the site In response to questions tlie Pentagon said the armed reaction force normally is posted two kilometers south of tlie truce zone and that the Joint Security Area where UK killings occurred is in the middle of the DMZ Officials calculated that the reaction force would have been about Iwo miles away and could not liave seen the Aug 18 fighting The officials said the attack lasted only a few minutes and the reaction force could not have reached the scene in time The Pentagon did not say under circumstances the force would react The
