(Salzburg, Austria) White House recognizes Kissinger's desire to clear self. Reporter wonders why Kissinger choose this delicate moment to threaten to resign.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Salzburg, Austria) Thursday, Kissinger asked if he'd hired attorney to defense self against possible perjury charges. Upset that 1st news conference after Syrian-Israeli disengagement focused on wiretaps, rather than foreign affairs. "Washington Post" editorial challenged his integrity and urged Senate Foreign Relations Committee to recall him to see if he told truth. "New York Times" insinuated he lied about wiretaps role. Felt if Kissinger operated under same cloud as President, American foreign commitments wouldn't be taken seriously.
