Awoke with knowledge our people were in Wiesbaden at our air base there. As far as we know now they & some of their families who flew to Germany to meet them will arrive here tomorrow afternoon. Nancy & I plan to meet their plane. An N.S.P.G. meeting to plan strategy now. We are limited because the 7 kidnap victims are still being held. I phoned Assad to thank him & to call upon him to work for their release. He’s the only one who has any possible influence on the fanatics who did the kidnapping. He got a little feisty and suggested I was threatening to attack Lebanon. I told him nothing of the kind but we were going to do everything we could to bring the murderers of our young man to justice.
A full cabinet meeting to report on the whole episode. Upstairs early—with Congress gone these are an easy few days.
