An Appraisal of the Bombing of North Vietnam (through 14 May) [strikes were primarily armed reconnaissance against lines of communication, infiltration routes, dispersed logistic targets, and land and waterway traffic; although North Vietnamese infiltration continues and possibly at an increased rate, US efforts below the 20th parallel have disrupted management and control of LOC's; previously estimated damage to the North Vietnamese economy has been confirmed, increasing amounts of resources are being drawn from agriculture and industry, reallocation of management has resulted in a decline of production, and strikes against Cam Pha port have substantially reduced coal exports].
