Miller and other former POWs had met with Kirbo to urge extending amnesty to deserters as well. Day said Miller was censured and forced to retire in 1973 by then-Navy Secretary John Warner for his conduct as a POW because he "made a great number of tapes for the North Vietnamese and prepared propaganda for the enemy and against the United States." "My advice to Carter would be to abandon the entire program," he said, noting that President Ford's own clemency program was ignored by some 70 per cent of America's draft evaders who are now living in other countries. "There is no grassroots support for this amnesty at all," he said. "If a poll were taken, amnesty would be unanimously rejected by Americans." "I think my view is totally representative of the POW population today," Day said. ENTREE II Distinctively French The French flair for graceful design.

While the 1 ' N ' IMMI I ' bureau is likely to retain its role in coping with acts of espionage and sabotage against the United States, that aspect of its activities will be more clearly aimed at foreign threats rather than supposed domestic subversives. A 1975 congressional staff report charged that the FBI had developed a domestic intelligence system "to a point where no one inside or outside the bureau was willing or able to tell the difference between legitimate national security or law enforcement information and purely political intelligence." These and other allegations of FBI improprieties have led to a steep decline in public esteem for the bureau, according to public opinion surveys. It is this post-Watergate slide that Carter and his team will seek to reverse. Atlanta lawyer Robert Lipshutz, who is due to serve as White House counsel under Carter, may play a leading role in planning the contemplated FBI reforms. Current statutes are sufficiently broad to permit the bureau to look into practically anything it chooses. In recent years, it has investigated the unsolved disappearance of former Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa, the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King and the bombing of New York's LaGuardia Airport.
