Back to Wash. and a hectic afternoon. Met with Deputy P.M. Ali of Egypt on the Lebanon mess. Spoke to Nat. Assn. of broadcasters. Met with Al H. & Bill Clark on Lebanon. We’re working on a tightrope. Some 6000 armed P.L.O. are holed up in Beirut. Pres. Sarkis of Lebanon cant say openly but he apparently wants Israel to stay near until the P.L.O. can be dis-armed. Then he wants to restore the Central govt. of Lebanon—allow Palestinians to become citizens & get all foreign forces to withdraw from Lebanon. The world is waiting for us to use our muscle and order Israel out—we cant do this if we want to help Sarkis but we cant explain the situation either. Some days are worse than others.
