A bill signing—anti-terrorism legislation. Two hours of debate briefing. Then N.S.C. meeting re the terrorist targets in Lebanon. We have one in the Bekaa Valley we are convinced is a training center. My decision, in view of the threats hanging over us for the next several days (the anniversary of the Marine holocaust) is to be ready with an air strike if they attempt another attack. To strike now & then to have them attack would look like it was a reprisal for our raid.

A long afternoon of working on a closing statement for the debate.
