Abstract:
Assessment of the situation in the southern delta of South Vietnam [Viet Cong have lost their momentum and are conducting a "holding operation"; there has been little progress by the South Vietnamese govt., despite the ambitious Revolutionary Development Program, because of the corrupt and apathetic leadership; in some areas there seems to be a tacit agreement between South Vietnamese and VC personnel to maintain the status quo]. Directorate of Intelliegence, Office of Current Intelligence Memorandum No. 0632/67. Apr. 19, 1967. 7 p., map. CONFIDENTIAL. Declassified Nov. 9, 1979.
