6A THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1997 Cohen still skeptical about role in Bosnia National Guard may get broader role Bosnia) and would not want to see them unraveled. "But by the same token, I also want to see a lot more contribution coming from others before I would modify my own position to accommodate the European forces, who are initiative, announced last week, to give the 400,000-member Guard new responsibilities to help lead the response against chemical and biological attack. Defense officials have been searching for a new role for an organization they believe to be underused, but possessing too much grass-roots political support ever to be eliminated. The Pentagon has been "looking desperately for missions for the National Guard," said one high-ranking defense official, adding that officials understand that "they won't go away." Some analysts believe, however, that the Guard's training level and historic mission make it a poor choice for a job requiring quick reaction and highly specialized technical expertise. "You're talking about handing them one of the most time-sensitive, least clear-cut threats out there," said Daniel Goure, a defense expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. "They may be one of the worst choices for this," he said. Moreover, Goure said, because their units might be called to active duty during a national emergency, many would be unavailable for such civil-defense responsibilities in time of war. there and demand that we stay there," he said. Cohen said he would not discuss the evolution of his thinking before President Clinton makes a final decision 1 A federal panel wants the i.Guard to take expanded role y. in defending against chemical ;. or biological weapons.

The advisory group, called the National Defense Panel, contends that the military has not moved quickly enough to counter the new dangers from enemy nations and groups, and argues that the Guard is well-suited to help respond to such emergencies because of its routine contacts with local civilian agencies. The proposal tracks with a Pentagon Guard members generally train one weekend a month and two weeks a year. While they have a long tradition of helping local authorities with natural disasters, riots and similar emergencies, their first mission is to take part in war. They lag behind active-duty Army units and the Marines in receiving training in defense against chemical and biological weapons. One panel official, who asked to remain unidentified, acknowledged that the Guard does not have the technical expertise to train civilian agencies in the defense of these weapons. "We have to get them ready," he said, as other agencies also must learn how to deal with the various aspects of the new threat. Lawrence Korb, who as a Pentagon official in the 1980s had authority over the Guard, speculated that the organization might not like an assignment if it conflicted with its war-waging role. "They see their first role as helping fight wars," he said. Richard Haas, a former Bush administration national security aide also at Brookings, agreed that there would probably be "a lot of resistance" from the Guard because the change would blur war and policing roles. i The Washington Post WASHINGTON After months of resistance, Defense Secretary William Cohen is moving toward reluctantly accepting the view of colleagues in the Clinton administration that U.S. troops must remain in Bosnia past a June 1998 deadline, his aides say. But Cohen still declines to say so in public. As he prepares this week to attend a meeting of NATO defense ministers in Brussels, Cohen continues to play the public role of the administration's holdout on Bosnia, suggesting in an interview last week that unless European countries contribute more to peace particularly in financing and training an effective local police force he would be hard-pressed to endorse a renewed U.S. military mission. "I've never operated on the basis of having a closed mind," Cohen said. "I can certainly accept some of the positive things that have been achieved (in Cohen about whether to extend the U.S. military operation. Aides said he hopes he can use his status as the administration's most public doubter on Bosnia as leverage with European allies. Without a greater European role, Cohen contends it would be difficult to persuade Congress to finance a continued U.S. military presence in Bosnia. r I Wig m4 VOU to r-r-"-I ' - the picture- M.B.
