editorials PAGE 4 I Garden City Telegram ; Thursday, June 17, 1971 ! A Nation Deceived The court has muffled the New York Times and temporarily halted further publication of articles on a secret Pentagon study of the Vietnam War. If the injunction is made permanent, it could mean that secret governmental actions, no matter how deceptive or inept, will transcend the people's right to know. The Times calls it an act of unprecedented censorship, which it is. The newspaper, operated' by honorable men, has said it would not have published the articles if they jeopardized a single U.S. serviceman or the national security. Newspapers are not callous to national security. This was proved during World War n when they operated under a voluntary censorship. But they jealously guard the right to keep a nation informed; to expose bungling and deception in government. This is essential to the continue - ... tion of a free society. Why shouldn't the 'Ainerioan people know they have been deceived by their leaders; that the nation was drawn into a conflict in which the military involvement was grossly disproportionate to the national interest?. Why shouldn't the people who have provided the raw resources, 50,000 lives and billions of dollars, be told the truth about major strategy changes? Sen. George McGovern said the Pentagon study tells a story of "almost incredible deception, deception of Congress and the 'American people, by the highest officials of government, including the President of the United States." The study disclosed, among other things, that President Johnson ordered a decision made in April, 1965, to have U.S. ground forces take the offensive be kept secret. The decision was made after bombing of North Vietnam proved ineffective. When confronted by the press, Johnson denied any dramatic change in war strategy. Now the Justice Department, to save any further embarrassment to the present administration which has suffered credibility gaps of its own, has successfully halted further publication of the articles because they could result in "irreparable injury to the national defense" History has recorded how freedom has been trampled for the good of the state; in the name of national security. Credibility in government has been severely damaged. 'And when people lose trust In their leaders, their every move becomes suspect. One can only wonder what other decisions inimical to the interests of the American people are wrapped in the protective cloak of national security. ART BUCHWALD WRITES; A Heart-To-Heart Talk:? Son, This Is Called A Til WASHINGTON—This is the time of the year when fathers sit down and have heart-to- heart talks with their sons. "Son, now that you have graduated your mother feels I would not be fulfilling my duties as a father if I did not explain certain facts about life to you." "Yes, Dad." "First, I would like to show you a few things that you will have to deal with in the outside world. For example, this item is called a necktie." ! "What do you do with it?"
