Laird, the former defense secretary, says he ordered the clandestine bombing of Cambodia but. did not authorize falsification of the records of •the raids. Laird, now (an adyiser to President Nixon, described his role in the 1969-70 bombing campaign at a White House news conference Thursday. He said President Nixon approved the raids and'that they were kept secret because of a diplomatically sensitive situation. * -9 The secret bombing campaign was revealed last week. It involved more than 3,600 sorties flown by American planes against targets in Cambodia during the 14 months before U.S. ground troops vtere sent into the Indochina nation in the spring of 1970. At the time, Cambodia was officially neutral, but the Vietnamese Communists maintained large base camps along Caml border with South Vietnam. Laird, who was defense secretary during Nixon's first term, said the National Securi­ ty Council "was unanimous" that the bombing should not be made public at the time because of possible diplomatic embarrassment to Prince Noro- dom Sihanouk, the Cambodian ruler. The State Department has contended Sihanouk secret- for the •it • J ia's ly gave approval boirfbing of Vietnamese Communist sanctuaries,. but Siha­ nouk has denied this. • L Laird saicl he "recommended these strikes ,, and "happened to be in Saigon at the time they started" in March, 1969. "I recommended the raids because I felt these areas were occupied by the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong," he said. "There were no Cambodians in the area." Laird denied he had ever approved falsification of the, records ahd reporting on the raids. Laird said it was true that Air Force Secretary Robert C. Seamans was. not told of the raids. He said that under a reporting chain of command, which Congress initiated and authorized, the figures never cot to Seamans.
