REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(DC) [ROGERS - no intention of asking for more legislature authority; continue use of air power, but won't use close air support that necessitates ground coordinators; can't imagine situation using ground combat forces.] [Senator J. William FULBRIGHT - situation created where United States and world think we're responsible for Cambodian survival.] Senator Cooper convinced no violation of letter or spirit of Cooper-Church amendment; Sen, Church feels better obeyed, but spirit violated by using air power in Cambodia. [Senator George AIKEN - if administration expanded United States role in Cambodia, public uproar greater than May, 1970.]
