    Background: Special presidential advisor McGeorge Bundy, just back from South Vietnam reported to U.S. President Lyndon Johnson and the National Security Council Monday (8 February) during a series of White House meetings on the current Vietnamese crisis. Afterwards, Mr. Bundy discussed the Vietnamese situation with reporters.

    Replying to a question of where American policy in Southeast Asis is leading, particularly in light of the evacuation of American civilians from Vietnam, Bundy said the recent developments indicate greater risks for American women and children there. He refused to discuss future policy in any detail aside from stressing American determination to continue the military effort in Vietnam. Asked whether the recent Viet Cong attacks and the subsequent U.S. strikes against, North Vietnam had produced any political reaction in South Vietnam, Bundy said the U.S. actions had the wholehearted approval and cooperation of the South Vietnamese authorities.
