  • Description


    RUSK SPEAKING (SOF)



    RUSK SAID: IT SEEMS TO BE AN AUTHENTIC STRUGGLE FOR LEADERSHIP AMONG THE TOP TWELVE OR FIFTEEN PEOPLE IN THE SYSTEM. THERE SEEMS TO BE A CONSIDERABLE DEBATE ON POLICY GOING ON BENEATH THE SURFACE. SOME OF THAT DEBATE MIGHT WELL HAVE PRECIPITATED THIS PRESENT STRUGGLE BUT I THINK IT MIGHT BE WELL TO DISCOUNT, IN PART, SOME OF THE DAY-TO-DAY NEWS THERE. WE ARE WATCHING IT VERY CLOSELY BUT I THINK WE OUGHT NOT TO JUMP TO PREMATURE CONCLUSIONS ABOUT HOW IT IS GOING TO COME OUT. QUITE FRANKLY, WE JUST DON'T KNOW."
