Subject: A Suggestion Mike and Warren, One argument that I am developing in these final sections is that in 1986 the USG examined the CT system and found it wanting. VP George Bush oversaw this review. Then Iran-Contra happened and Reagan lost his traction. But GHWBush, as president, did not implement the changes necessary. What I wonder is what "lessons" Cheny and Rummy thought they were bringing to the table about terrorism and whether Poppy gave his son some advice. My guess is that they told him not to worry about it in the way that "alarmists" like Clarke were suggesting. So, I hope that someone will ask Condi in public about the CT system -- not just about killing UBL. I have not been able to see all 44 recs and the NSDD 207 [1986] which implemented them - they are still classified. But I think you should and then see what was left to do in 1986 that was never down until after 9-11. Best, Tim.

One covers Reagan's second term (Achille Lauro, Libya, Abu Nidal) and is shaping up to be as long as the Nixon chapter and a much shorter Bush chapter. I have another project to turn to at the end of next weekend, so I will do everything I can to get them to you in an acceptable form this week. I do hope that you find my sections useful as you write your final report. Tim.
