As a first step, tie called for a meeting of the United States and , its Atlantic Pact partners to draft "a peace program." "Alter we have created the climate for pence, then the (lay for • talks (with Russia) will have arrived," he said. The proper forum for these talks, ho insisted. Is the United Nations General Assembly. He said it should meet In Moscrw with the understanding that the debates "be broadcast in every corner of the earth."

Declared that if thU Is so "then assuredly the secretary of defense should Initiate action in' the Na- tional Security Council to obtain t firm statement of principles upoi which the joint chiefs of staff ma> rely." The National Security Council i. composed of the president, vici president, secretaries of slate am defense and the head of the Nation al Security Resources Board. The committee reviewed Navy contentions that present military strategy calls for immediate retaliatory bombing ol enemy cities in event of an attack on the United States. "The Navy's contention," said the report, "was that existing strategic planning contemplates the slaughter of millions of noncoinbalants. the cva.station of vast urban areas, irtually Hit destruction of the en- re social fabric of the enemy." Tile committee said the question f strategy cannot be answered by no country alone—that the tactics f a possible aggressor have to be sighed. But it added: "The Issue is ossurely not acad- mic.
