A bright, pretty day & back to the W.H. At 11:30 a meeting in the Oval office—Don R. Geo. S. Geo. B. Cap W. Bill Casey, Ed Meese John P. & 2 of his staff. Subject the press storm charging that we are negotiating with terrorist kidnapers for the release of hostages using sale of arms as ransome. Also that we are violating our own law about arms sales to Iran. They quote as gospel every unnamed source plus such authorities as a Danish sailor who claims to have served on a ship carrying arms from Israel to Iran etc. etc. etc. I ordered a statement to effect we were not dealing in ransome etc. but that we would not respond to charges or Q’s that could endanger hostage lives or lives of people we were using to make contact with the terrorists.
At 1:30 a Rose Garden ceremony recognizing the Marines 211th birthday. Then a photo with Cong.man Bill McCollum who had authored an immigration bill amendment H.R. 3737. I signed it at the time. A lengthy taping session with both Nancy & I doing some of them together. Then a twice as long dental session for replacement of a worn out filling.
