Abstract:
The intelligence at hand generally substantiates the conclusion in General Westmoreland's cable that the infiltration of men and materiel to South Vietnam via Laos is continuing at a very heavy pace. Intelligence also indicates that this pace is likely to increase in the coming weeks prior to the advent of the monsoon, as General Westmoreland anticipates. It does not appear, however, that the Communist are presently planning an all-out effort to utilize the infiltration corridor at maximum capacity during the next few weeks. The Communists probably do intend to continue moving some truck traffic south in Laos during the rainy season this year, in contrast to past year.
