We all decided after more night & early morning calls we should cancel an appearance I was to make this afternoon & get back here to the W.H. Had an N.S.C. meeting. It’s a frustrating situation. We have forces on Cypress now—a specially trained unit but it couldn’t be used in the hostile atmosphere of Beirut.

The demand is still for the Shiites held in Israel. These are people the Israelis intend to release in a few weeks but they are unwilling to let it appear that they are giving in to the hi-jackers demands. I suggested there might be a way to do it & turned it around on the H.J.’s but we’ve all decided to wait & hear the outcome of the Israeli Cabinet meeting.
