Several ol North Carolina's 1 1 congressmen said they
supported President Reagan's decision to launch
'retaliatory air strikes against Libya for alleged
terrorism, but some offered more cautious justifications
Democratic Rep. Walter Jones of Farmville was the
only congressman who had previously criticized the
action, but this was a misinterpretation of his
comments, said Tommy Payne, Jones press secretary.
Last week. Jones was quoted as calling the attack
"totally ill-advised," but that was not his official
opinion. Payne said.
"If this action by the president should in any way
reduce the acts of terrorism to which this world has
been subjected in recent months, then one must applaud
the action," Payne said, reading from a statement
prepared by Jones.
But if the . United States has alienated any of its
allies or strengthened Libyan leader Col. Moammar
Khadafy's popularity, the decision was unwise, he said.
Rep. Stephen Neal, a Democrat from Winston
Salem, said he supported the air strikes but thought
the president should have included Congress more in
his decision making.
"There was not adequate consultation of Congress,"
Neal said. "Under the War Powers Act, consultation
is required. But it should have happened earlier on,
with time for full discussion."
Reagan spoke with foreign affairs committee
members and House and Senate leaders after the planes
were in the air, but he should have notified Congress
a couple of days before acting, Neal said, adding that
some action was necessary.
"We have tried over the last several years through
diplomatic means and economic sanctions to stop
Khadafy from harboring and supporting terrorists,"
he said. "It hasn't worked."
The air strikes will probably not end terrorism, but
there would have been more terrorism if the United
States had not acted, Neal said.
Rep. Charles Rose, a Democrat from Fayetteville,
supported the U.S. decision to strike because Reagan
had no better options, said Ivan Swift, Rose's
"When it comes to dealing with international
terrorism, it's a horribly difficult problem for any
president," Swift said. "You just can't predict how
someone with the mental attitude of Khadafy . . . (will)
react. But we can't continue to let our citizens be killed
in terrorist attacks without trying to get across that
we will act."
Republican Rep. Howard Coble of Greensboro
supported the air strikes because Khadafy admitted
his involvement in terrorist activities aimed at
Americans, said Ed McDonald, Coble's press secretary.
"It's time we called Khadafy's hand," McDonald
said. "As the president said, he (Khadafy) counted on
Americans to remain passive, but he counted wrong.
We were not passive."
Opponents of the air strikes have criticized the
president for provoking Khadafy, but the United States
was terrorized even before provoking the leader,
"We should impose casualties and damages until
Libya gets our message," he said.
Democratic Rep. Tim Valentine of Nashville told
the president over the telephone that he supported the
air strike, said Dean Brown, Valentine's press secretary.
"America can't lie around like a sleeping giant to
let events overtake us," Brown said. "But we should
also be aware of the need for caution in using military
force. We need to strike (terrorists) until they roll over
and cry uncle.
Rep. Alex McMillan, a Republican from Charlotte,
also fully supported the air strikes, said Jay Timmons,
McMillan's press secretary.
"Congressman McMillan believes that anytime we
can link terrorist attacts to Libya, and especially to
Moammar Khadafy, we must hit Khadafy again and
again until he learns that he cant murder innocent
people," Timmons said.
Khadafy will probably try to save face with other
Arab nations with counter-offensive attacks, but the
magnitude of his actions is uncertain, Timmons said.
The congressmen said they would support similar
retaliatory strikes against other countries if the
circumstances and the evidence were similar to Libya.

personal attack this weekend on Pres

capitals by Adolph Hitler during World
In what appeared to be Castro's
harshest attack to date on Reagan, he
called the U.S. attack "brutal, shameful,
criminal and terrorist," and said Reagan
"is as unscrupulous, opportunistic and
irresponsible as Hitler."

victims of the U.S.-baclced invasion by
Cuban exiles at the Bay of Pigs on April
Castro spent the first hour and 45
minutes of his speech recounting the
Bay of Pigs invasion, . but his principal
message came during the final hour of
his appearance when he spoke about
the U.S. attack on Libya and shortcom
ings in Cuban society.
He called Reagan the "legitimate heir
of Hitler" and said Reagan is potentially
more dangerous than the Nazi leader
because Washington has nuclear
"Compared with what Reagan has.
Hitler had what would seem to be bows
and arrows," he said.
Castro also said he attached signif
icance to published reports in the United
States that Libyan leader Moammar
Khadafy was a target of the attack.
"What had never taken place until now
was that the president (of) one of the
most powerful countries on Earth has
used his armed forces, his sophisticated

bombers, to try to assassinate the leacier ,
of a country with which it is not at war,"
Reagan has denied any such inten
tion. He said the attack was warranted
by what he termed repeated acts of
Castro said the predawn attack on
Libya Tuesday occurred 25 years to the
day after exile pilots launched air strikes
against Cuban air force targets in an
effort to allow the invasion force to land
uncontested. The tactic failed.
Castro said the memory of those who
died at the Bay of Pigs is not served
well by the many Cubans who are
corrupt or shirk their responsibility.
He cited the case of a Cuban who
earned $240,000 in one year selling to
state agencies and other purchasers
paintings which were not the works of
"Picasso or Michelangelo."
"We have lazy people, negligent
people, people who don't want to
struggle, irresponsible people, people
who are not sufficiently demanding
within their areas of responsibility,
people who want privileges, people who
seek easy money . . . through specula
tion and illicit transaction," he said.

Khadafy cornered, frightened
by bombing raids, officials say
WASHINGTON Key admin
istration officials believe that last
week's bombing raid on Col. Moam
mar Khadafy's headquarters fright
ened the Libyan leader, emboldened
his enemies in his own country and
put renewed pressure on America's
European allies to combat terrorism.
At the same time, however, the
same officials expect the United
States may well be prompted to
The officials, who were involved
in administration policy-making in
the weeks leading up to President
Reagan's decision to launch the
bombing raid, agreed to discuss their
view of its effects only on condition
they not be identified.
Khadafy's drop from public view
immediately after the attack and
subsequent appearances only on
television, rather than in the streets
of Tripoli, "suggest that he's very
scared," one official said.
Marines may have trained KKK
RALEIGH U.S. Marines
based at Camp Lejeune helped train
Ku Klux Klansman in the use of
weapons and combat techniques at
the Johnston County farm of Glenn
Miller, according to sworn state
ments by two former White Patriot
Party members. t
The statements, taken in 1 984 by
lawyers for the Montgomery,
Alabama-based Southern Poverty
Law Center, were made available to
the News and Observer of Raleigh
Friday. They say Marines from
Camp Lejeune also helped provide
uniforms and other military equip
ment for Miller's white supremacy
group, whose members typically
wear combat fatigues instead of the
traditional white sheets of the Klan
State & cffiertal
at rallies and other gatherings.
One of the statements was taken
in the offices of Thorp, Fuller and
Silfkiri, a Raleigh law firm. The other
was taken at Lee County Office
Building in Sanford.

Critics in Mayor Nicola Signorel

Rome's red tape to give the fast-food

"Anyway, Neaopolitans have

Gorbachev says summit possible
POTSDAM, East Germany
Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev
said Sunday that he was willing to meet
President Reagan this year if the United
States changed policies he charged were
poisoning relations between the
Speaking to reporters at Potsdam,
site of the 1945 Allied conference on
Germany, Gorbachev said, "The meet
ing (with Reagan) can take place if the
United States realizes that it is necessary
to take this path.
"But if it (America) goes on acting
as it is today, trying to poison the
atmosphere, this will throw a shadow
over any future meeting," the Soviet
Communist Party chief said. "If it (the
summit) is to happen, a better atmos
phere is necessary."
Gorbachev did not elaborate, but he
appeared to be referring to last week's
bombing raids on Libya and recent U.S.
underground testing of nuclear wea
pons. White House Chief of Staff Donald
T. Regan said Sunday that the United
States expected Gorbachev to "live up
to his word" and meet with Reagan this
The two men agreed at their Geneva
summit in November to meet this year
in the United States.
