The U.S. 196th Light Infantry U.S. officials readily acknowledged the diversion of American AID goods to the Viet Cong. They say there is no way to pinpoint, or even estimate, the dollar value of the losses.

Thus, they are wide open to Viet Cong extortion. "Unless you put a military tlon about the king of spades ; ana of Abbeville, La., Houston [ S^^^^ o" every convoy, you " " 'can't stop the VC shakedowns," said one American military enforcement officer. "And if we did that, we wouldn't have enougti men to fight the war." The Vietnamese police and armed forces do not provide protection for most of the truck traffic outside the cities, though they have established checkpoints along key routes. It's an entirely different story where military aims, ammunition and supplies are concerned. The U.S. forces maintain a very close guard over their gear in transit or in depots. And American military authorities say they have found no evidence of any significant amount of U.S.-suppIied arms or equipment finding its way to the Viet Cong through connivance of the South Vietnamese military. Back when the South Vietnamese aiTOy was doing most of the ground fighting, the number of weapons lost to the Reds just about Ijaiancod tlie number taken fiom the Viet Cong. But with the big U.S. troop buildup, llie edge turned against tlio Communists by a 2-1 margin in tlie first half of 1966. The drainoff of drugs and food to the Viet Cong is another matter. "Tliore are many chances of leakage to the Viet Cong and medicines represent one of the most serious leakages of all the commodities we pay for," said a top of tlie Agency for International Development.
