Officially signed off on position I took a few days ago regarding sanctions on Libya. Bill Smith came by to tell me the F.B.I. investigation into leak from Nat. Security meeting could not claim evidence of a criminal act. At same time F.B.I. targeted several they believed should take polygraph tests. I’ve decided that’s up to them—I will not order it. I know such an order from me would be leaked and it would kick up a fuss not warrented by the deed. Over to Exec. bldg. for signing of Human Rt. Day proclamation. Spoke to group including many victims & refugees of & from totalitarian countries. A sobering briefing on Soviet offensive power & plans for a protracted Nuclear war. I wish some of our pacifist loud talkers could have access to this information. A preliminary budget review on Defense budget. Cap has pulled it down from $321 bil. to $305 bil. I have a hunch it will come out around 295 but we should ask for 305 because the Demos. will cut whatever we come in with. Off to Camp David.
