Staff time began with Beryl Sprinkel resigning as Ec. Advisor. I couldn’t ask him to stay—he had family reasons & so it’s back to Ill. for him. Then Liz Dole came by & she is leaving the Cabinet in order to campaign for her husband.
N.S.C.—Gen. Powell reported on a successful Sting operation we brought off in the Mediterranean. A participant in 2 hijackings that took Am. lives was enticed to leave Beirut & go to Cyprus. There he was told of a Mr. Big in the drug business who had a money making plan for him was offshore on a luxury Yacht. He fell for it. The crew turned out to be our F.B.I. men & he’s now on his way to America to be charged for his crimes.
We also have another Kuwait convoy on it’s way through the Persian Gulf. Libya is sending planes to Iran by way of Turkey air space. We think they’re carrying mines.
