35. Editorial Note

By April 26, 1961, drafts of A Program of Action To Prevent Communist Domination of South Vietnam were under consideration. One version, without an annex, is printed in United States-Vietnam Relations, 1945-1967, Book 11, pages 42-57. Another apparently later draft, but also dated April 26 with an annex, was forwarded to the President on April 27 under cover of a memorandum from Gilpatric; see Declassified Documents, 1978, page 147A.
