for it says something about the present plight of both Ells berg and the Our first meeting took place in the Pentagon when Ellsberg was working for the late John McNaughton who was then As sistant Secretary ot Defense for international security af I had recently seen some thing of the Vietnamese Com At that time not much was known of them and I went to the defense department to tell McNauphton

standing with himself and the world became a function of who was right when and where and for what reasons on But the central fact about the Vietnam problem is that it is vastly remote from such ex alted It is a shabby affair in an insignifi cant country distant from the big issues of world It matters immensely to most Vietnamese but cannot for long mailer much lo mosl Ameri Thus there has been no way of meeting the problem by the force of positive achieve ment either national or per That is why Vietnam has been a special disaster for the best and brightest Ihose mosl dedicated to find some
