MEMORANDUM FOR THE DIRECTOR
SUBJECT: The "Second Front" Hypothesis
1. Will the Soviets pose a major challenge to the US at some
other point of confrontation in order to assist the Communist
cause in Vietnam? When put previously, this question has been
answered in the negative. The present stage of the struggle in
Vietnam perhaps makes it relevant again.
