Description
Washington: At a Pentagon news conference 2/24 Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird said that South Vietnamese forces in Laos 'are achieving their objective of major disruption of enemy supply routes.' At the briefing Lt. Gen. John Vogt, operations director of the joint staff of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, (left) displayed a segment of a four- inch pipeline (foreground)--once used to carry fuel for Communist trucks on the Ho Chi Minh Trail--which the South Vietnamese had ripped out two days ago. Laird listens at right.
