In an Interview with The Associated Press, the man in charge of the pacification program In South Vietnam conceded the Viet Cong handed the program a major setback with called for Johnson to appoint "a man of high international stature who would not have been previously identified with any school of thought" on Vietnam, The appointee would have "sole responsibility for conducting negotiations and full authority to take the initiative in promoting such negotiations," Fulbrleht said* In New York, special presidential assistant John P. Roche said U.S. use of tactical nuclear weapons in Vietnam "is inconceivable under the present administration."
