preparing for a majordebate when he gets home on the meaning of security in the nuclear age and on the value and risks of closer ties with the Soviet Union As details of the Moscow meeting between President Nixon and the Soviet leader Leonid I Brezhnev began to emerge Russia and America are presented as having arrived at a period of crucial decision In describing the debate that Kissinger has in mind a senior official traveling on his plane asserted that it was as impor tant ot future generations as the national debate in the 1950s about whether the arms race had to be faced and how to

accommodation once again The official who asked not to be identified gave a summary of the way some agreement was reached in Moscow on how the negotiation He said that the US came with a proposal that was quickly rejected by the Russians If it had been accepted he said1 there would have been a dispute among various American leaders about the safety of such an agreement But the riskof a domestic argument never had to be faced he said because there was complete American agreement that the proposal was a max reached in MOSCOW on now me UWL U S and the Soviet Union might imum offer and that

poorest exercises of political judgment Ive seen Again he insisted however that contrary to many published appraisal of his character that emerged from those transcripts Colson also discussed his negative public and press image characterizing himself as a vic tim of what he termed an almost irreversible mindset among the press corps If he did serve as a hatchet he said it was at the specific direction of the President Colson who was sentenced last month for his admitted in volvement in obstruction of justice against Dr Daniel Ellsberg smoked constantly during the interview and shark eda drink or two but otherwise seemed as much at ease as anyone could under the circumstances He talked animatedly about the misconception of authority and power among aides serving in the White House an
