Notes, topics or text 

"Wednesday's New York Times story by Robert Dallos does not mean we have changed policy. I did say the Bertrand Russell Foundation is out to prove a point with investigations and they have an axe to grind. All politically oriented organizations have a point of view which they pursue diligently; it's their job. I would have made the same statement about the Pentagon, the Democratic Party or the Republican Party. I may not agree with a group's premise, but CBS News will continue reporting all sides of major issues affecting our country and our world, particularly a story with such ramifications for the future as the United States' commitment to Vietnam."
