slightest connecticn overtly or covertly with any forces or agencies under my control In spite of this I have con sistently required my senior dele gates and the commanders of the forces under my command to grant you the courtesy of a full inspection and report of every al leged incident regardless of its manifest falsity Propaganda The evidence in this most re cent alleged violation the raid on Kaesong was even more pal pably compounded for your in sidious propaganda purposes than your earlier efforts He added I have caused the results of the investigation into this most re cent allegation to be widely pub licized so that the entire world will be fully cognizant of your evi dent intent to use a manufactured incident in order to evade the re sponsibility for having suspended
