Finished the paper on the Rightist Revolution and Coup d’etat both for James Lowenstein and Richard Moose of the Fulbright Foreign Relations Committee as well as for our confidential files.

Then met these two Americans.

Received the report of Gov. Langkula on Sulu. He asks for a military solution to the growing opposition to the government led by NDA leader Nurullaji “Nur” Misuari The government troops in some places like Luuk are virtual prisoners in their camps.
