(CORE). of the Cuban nation." reached it by the time darkness fell. DULLES QUOTED: CIA The Goat' In Viet Nam NEW YORK--CW---Former Central Intelligence Agency Director Allen W. Dulles was reported as saying today the nation's spy apparatus is being made "the goat" for American blundering in South Viet Nam. "Occasionally the, CIA has to be made the goat," he was quoted in a "copyright story In the New York Journal- American by William McCuI- lam. "It looks like it has to be the goat again. "Still--it may be better for the CIA-to be tarred in the 'Vietnamese mess than the President of the United States or the secretary of'state." ; Dulles' statements · were made in a personal interview In his suite in the Mayfair HOUM. ·'; . . ' ' : ' · , He also made the following points In, defending the controversial agency he headed from 1953 until his retirement two years ago: Any disputes between the CIA, the State Department arid military leaders involved in the war against Communist guerrillas in South Viet Nam have been due to the lack of a .clear-cut operational policy in Washington. , What is needed in Saigon and Washington both is "more cooperation and less backbiting between off Scials of the U.S. agencies concerned." It is "nonsense" to refer to -the pi A as a new third force in the government which spends billions in furtherance of its own secret policies and is accountable to no one, as alleged by its foes. * , · No operations of a political nature ever have been mounted by the CIA without White House approval and there never has been a case where the agency has failed to go along with White House policy to the best of its ability. For Long Years' Service . . . 'PHOENIX--(/P)--The; Ari- zdna' Game' and 'Fish Department' doesn't have a retire- ment'policy for horses. A horse- named Buck is a department veteran. For many years, he has carried department personnel out of Prescott on winter deer surveys. . Buck was declared "too old to cut the mustard" at age 26. He was put on the surplus state property list. Bob Smith, department director, said yesterday Buck has been sold. He will be used for dog food. in Dulles added: "I will not discuss the sit uation in South Viet Nam in any detail because I know no more than I read in the papers. But I hate to see the CIA accused as a trouble maker and the morale of iti, members weakened by such charges as have been reported against Mr. Richardson Saigon." . * · · (John H. Richardson, CIA chief in South Viet Nam, was recalled to Washington for White House consultations several days ago. News reports said he twice refused earlier to obey instructions from American Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge). "I doubt that Mr. Richardson refused to carry out orders from Mr. Lodge," Dulles said. "I doubt that very much. What I do believe is that the ambassador has the right to request any new personnel he may want." 1954 and no Hoi, fore Diem ures Diem are Day dpm
