Senate confirms 'A dm. Moorer as chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff United Press International WASHINGTON - The Senate yesterday confirmed the nomination of Adm. Thomas H. Moorer as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff despite the objection of Sen. Stephen M. Young, D-Ohio, who found fault with his judgment during the Gulf of Tonkin incident. The nomination was confirmed 78 to 2. Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, D-Minn., joined Young in voting against Moorer, who succeeds Army Gen. Earle G. Wheeler, who is retiring. Young noted that at the time of the Tonkin affair, Moorer was commander of the Pacific Fleet, which included the destroyers Maddox and Turner Joy. The Johnson administration contended that the two destroyers were attacked by the North Vietnamese. "Certainly, Adm. Moorer . . . knew, or in the exercise of ordinary care should have known, that was not a truthful statement to give the American people," Young said. Young said the Maddox probably wag never attacked and added that Moorer, nevertheless, "reported confirmation of night attacks on the destroyers Maddox and Turner Joy and at no time later withdrew the charges." Conceding bad conditions at sea, Young asked, "How could a commander miles away be so certain of the facts when the commander at the scene was not?" Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, R-Ariz., recalled that at the time of the incident he was a candidate for president. He said President Johnson telephoned him "full details" of the incident. "The attack was made. Adm. Moofefa Judgment was superb," Goldwater said. E.
