On
November

was
in
Dacca,
Bangladesh,
as
chairman
of

an
international
organization
regimenting

America
in

It
was
the
usual
 everything

and
Carter
told
the
horde
in
Dacca
that
the
raid
against
Libya,
which
Colonel
North
and
Admral
Poindexter
helped
plan,
was
a
mstake
because
 it
killed
innocent
people
and
made
Qaddafi
a
hero
.
The
truth
is,
 t
followed
a
revolutionary
congress
in
Tripoli
where
delegates
from
Europe,
 
the
Americas
and
Asia
unanimously
voted
Qaddafi
revolutionary
leader
of
the
world
 
Over
7000
volunteers
were
being
trained
in

camps
to
carryterrorism

the
aim
of

and
maimng
thousands
 
Louis

there
among

Qaddafi
was
holding
lethal
nervegas

for
the
scud-B
mssiles
given
him
by
the

The
lethal
 non-persistent
nerveagent
which
Qaddafi
has
since
passed
on
to
the
Syrians
and
Iranians
forconvertibility
into
othercontainers
is
capable
of

uninhabitable
for
24
hours
after

That
the
moves
Qaddafi s
revolutionaries
were
planning
were
neverput
into
effect
was
because
men
in
Washington
showed
that
they
could
andwould

forsix

the

 Though
the
America-is-always
wrong
brigade,
from
George
MGovern
down
the
line,
is
gloatingover
the
President s
discomorture,
Europeansmust
not
forget
that
aweakened
Washington
means
a
weakenedWest
 
So
if
the
Reagan
Presidency
is
in
trouble,
then
we
are
all
in
trouble
 
W
can
only
hope
that
those
in
congress
charged
wthunravelling
the
mess
do
so
in
a
responsible
way
 
Part
of
the
blame,
he
continued,
 must
he
wth
the
weakening
of
Presidential
power
due
to
Watergate
and
Vietnam
 
Congressional
inquisitors
are
able
to
drawon
these
feelings
and
claim
to
be
elimnatingcorrupt
practices,
when
they
are,
in
fact,
emasculating
Presidential
power
 
America
now
has
imperial
responsibilities
;
these
cannot
be
discharged
bysermons
alone
 
But
the
effect
of
congressionaloversight
has
been
to
bluntthe
CA
as
aninstrument
of
power
 
This
has
not
prevented
covert
operations,
 t
hasmerely
forced
them
intoexile
in
the
basement
of
the
White
House
 
where
they
are
handled
much
less
effectively
 
The
motives
of
those
who
launderedfunds
to
the
Contras
were
of
the
best
 
If
the
Contras
collapse,
then
 t
will
become
almost
inevitablethat
a

American

will
have
