REFERENCE: SAIGON 4788

1. WE REVIEWED THE COST OF THE BAILMENT TO AIR AMERICA
WITH DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. DOD IS WILLING TO WAIVE COST
OF HULL INSURANCE ESTIMATED AT 691,000 DOLS PER ANNUM.
HOWEVER, IF ANY OF THE AIRCRAFT SHOULD BE DAMAGED OR
DESTROYED, USG WOULD RESERVE RIGHT TO FILE AN APPROPRIATE
CLAIM AGAINST THE ICCS. FURTHER, IF AMBASSADOR BELIEVES
IT IS NECESSARY TO DO SO, DOD IS ALSO WILLING TO WAIVE COST
OF AMORTIZATION, ESTIMATED AT 337,000 DOLS PER ANNUM.
2. COST OF OVERHAULING, ESTIMATED AT 572,000 DOLS PER
ANNUM, CANNOT BE WAIVED. REGULAR OVERHAULING IS OBVIOUSLY
ESSENTIAL FOR EFFICIENT AND SAFE OPERATION OF AIRCRAFT AND
AMOUNT STATED IS OUT- OF- POCKET COST TO US ARMY.

REF: STATE 156521

1. AIR AMERICAN CONTRACT FOR VIETNAM CONTAINS NO REFERENCE TO
NARCOTICS INSPECTION OF AIR AMERICA PASSENGERS.
HOWEVER, A PROGRAM OF INSPECTION WAS INSTITUTED 21 FEB 73.
INSPECTION APPLIED ONLY TO AIR AMERICA AT SAIGON AND AT THE
FOUR REGIONAL CAPITALS. ALL OTHER INTERNAL AND INTERNATIONAL
TRANSPORT WAS NOT CONTROLLED. INSPECTION WAS CARRIED OUT BY
AIR AMERICA EMPLOYEES WITHOUT AUTHORITY TO CARRY OUT POLICE
FUNCTIONS

http://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/1973SAIGON14901_b.html

UNDER GVN LAW, BUT VIETNAMESE POLICE WERE PRESENT TO MAKE ARRESTS
IF NECESSARY. NO NARCOTICS WERE FOUND. MEMBERS OF THE MISSION
WHO TRAVEL MOST DOUBTED THAT THE CONTROLS WERE EFFECTIVE. THEY
WERE A MINOR NUISANCE TO TRAVELERS AND TO AIR OPERATIONS, AND
IN SOME CASES AN EMBARRASSMENT, AS WHEN AN EFFORT WAS MADE TO
SEARCH A FOREIGN MILITARY ATTACHE ON AN INTERNAL FLIGHT, OR WHEN
VIETNAMESE OFFICIALS WERE SUBJECTED TO AMERICAN SEARCH.

2. AIR AMERICA SERVICE IS ESSENTIAL TO THE MISSION BUT THE
GVN IS SENSITIVE TO IT AS A RIVAL TO AIR VIETNAM AND OTHER
PUBLIC TRANSPORT. THERE WAS SOME CONCERN THAT THE POSSIBLE AFFRONT
TO GVN SOVEREIGNTY IN THE CONTROL SYSTEM WOULD FOCUS THIS
OPPOSITION. THE NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF THE VIETNAMESE POLICE HAS SAID
HE WOULD CONTINUE TO COOPERATE WITH THE PROGRAM. HOWEVER, IT IS
HIS EMPHATIC VIEW THAT WITH MANY FORMS OF INTERNAL TRANSPORTATION
SECRET

SECRET

AVAILABLE, UNLIKE THE SITUATION IN LAOS, THE CONTROLS ARE
USELESS HERE. IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES, THE CHARGE D'AFFAIRES SUSPENDED
THE CONTROLS JUNE 30, 73, AND THE MISSION DOES NOT AT THIS TIME
INTEND TO REINSTATE THEM, BUT WILL KEEP THE SITUATION UNDER
CLOSE REVIEW.

1. DURING CALL ON DEPUTY ARMED FORCES COMMANDER GENERAL
SUMITRO OCTOBER 18, LATTER STATED THAT HE UNDERSTOOD AIR
AMERICA MIGHT BE ABOUT TO DISCONTINUE SERVICE IN VIET NAM
BECAUSE OF FAILURE TO RECEIVE PAYMENT FROM ICCS. SUMITRO
SAID IT FELT IT WAS OUR WISH, AND HE AGREED THAT IT IS
IMPORTANT, TO KEEP THE INDONESIAN CONTINGENT ACTIVE
IN THE REGIONS AND SUBREGIONS.

2. SUMITRO WENT ON TO SAY THAT DHARSONO HAS PROPOSED
THAT THE INDONESIAN CONTINGENTS IN THE REGIONS AND
SUBREGIONS BE WITHDRAWN OCTOBER 18 (JUST PRIOR TO THE
POSSIBLE SUSPENSION OF AIR SERVICE). SUMITRO ADDED THAT IF
SECRET

SECRET

PAGE 02 JAKART 12366 180646Z

THE INDONESIAN MILITARY IN THE REGIONS AND SUBREGIONS HAVE
TO BE PULLED BACK, HE FEELS IT IS HIS DUTY TO BRING THEM
BACK ALL THE WAY TO INDONESIA, LEAVING ONLY TOKEN GROUP IN
SAIGON.

3. I TOLD GENERAL SUMITRO THAT I COULD NOT GIVE HIM A
PRECISE ANSWER CONCERNING THE INTENTIONS OF AIR AMERICA
BUT WOULD GET HIM ONE ON A PRIORITY BASIS. I NOTED THAT
OF COURSE AIR AMERICA COULD NOT BE EXPECTED TO PROVIDE
SERVICES INDEFINITELY AND THE DEBT OWED THEM IS A LARGE
ONE. IN THE LAST FEW DAYS, HOWEVER, THE UNITED STATES
HAS PROVIDED OVER $5 MILLION AS OUR FINAL CONTRIBUTION
TO THE CURRENT ICCS BUDGET (REFTEL) ALTHOUGH WE HAVE NOT
YET GIVEN FINAL APPROVAL OF A $40 MILLION BUDGET UPON
WHICH LEVEL OUR CONTRIBUTION IS BASED. I ADDED THAT I
HOPED THAT THIS WOULD ENABLE THE ICCS TO PAY AIR AMERICA
A SUFFICIENT PORTION OF THE DEBT OWED IT SO THAT SERVICE
WOULD NOT BE INTERRUPTED, AND THE ICCS COULD CONTINUE
ITS WORK IN THE REGIONS AND SUBREGIONS.

4. REQUEST FIRM REPLY ON AIR AMERICA INTENTIONS
SOONEST SO THAT I CAN REPLY TO SUMITRO ON URGENT
BASIS.

1. IT NOW APPEARS CERTAIN THAT 5.7 MILLION DOLS US CON-
TRIBUTION TO ICCS HAS PRECLUDED SUSPENSION OF AIR AMERICA
SERVICES AND EXTENSIVE ICCS WITHDRAWAL FROM REMOTE SITES.
(IN ADDITION, WE UNDERSTAND THE GVN IS READY TO MAKE
AN IMMEDIATE, SUBSTANTIAL CONTRIBUTION WHICH SHOULD FURTHER
ALLEVIATE ICCS FINANCIAL WOES) AIR AMERICA HAS EXTENDED
DEADLINE OF TERMINATION TO OCTOBER 22, BY WHICH TIME IT
SHOULD BE IN THE PROCESS OF RECEIVING PAYMENT FROM THE
COMMISSION. ACCORDING TO THE TERMS OF THE AIR AMERICA
SECRET

PAGE 02 STATE 206850

LETTER TO THE ICCS, PAYMENT OF OUTSTANDING INVOICES WILL
ALLOW FOR A CONTINUATION OF SERVICES. WITH THESE NEW
DEVELOPMENTS, WE BELIEVE THE COMMISSION WILL NOT FIND
IT NECESSARY TO WITHDRAW REMOTE TEAMS AND ARE CONFIDENT
THAT THE CRISIS HAS PASSED FOR THE TIME BEING.

2. WE ARE PUZZLED BY SUMITRO'S REFERENCE TO HIS "DUTY"
TO PULL MOST OF INDODEL BACK TO INDONESIA IF IT WERE TO
BECOME NECESSARY TO WITHDRAW TEAMS FROM SUB-REGIONAL OR

REGIONAL SITES. THIS SEEMS AT VARIANCE WITH PAST
INDONESIAN STEADFASTNESS ON MATTER OF REDUCTION OF SIZE OF
ICCS CONTINGENTS (REF C) AND WE BELIEVE YOU S'OULD POINT
OUT TO SUMITRO IN STRONG TERMS THAT NOTHING WOULD BETTER
SUIT COMMUNIST PURPOSES. WE REALIZE THE FRUSTRATIONS
INVOLVED IN ATTEMPTING TO CARRY OUT THE ICCS MANDATE,
BUT HOPE THE GOI WILL NOT REACT PRECIPITOUSLY TO THE
DIFFICULTIES WHICH ARE BOUND TO OCCUR.

DHARSONO GET IN TOUCH WITH OUR AMBASSADOR IN SAIGON
IMMEDIATELY. HE AGREED THAT LATEST $5.7 MILLION CON-

2. I TOLD SUMITRO THAT THERE HAD BEEN SOME CONSTERNA-

FROM REGIONS TO SAIGON, HE WOULD BRING MOST OF THEM
BACK TO INDONESIA. SUMITRO INDICATED TO ME THAT HIS

1. STRIKERS AT UDORN ROYAL THAI AIR FORCE BASE BEAT UP A COUPLE
OF AMERICAN MECHANICS THE MORNING OF JANUARY 16. THE STRIKERS
HAVE INTIMIDATED AIR AMERICA GUARDS AND NO GUARDS WERE ON HAND
EARLY IN THE DAY. THE CONSUL IN UDORN HAS DISCUSSED THE SITUATION
WITH THE PROVINCE POLICE CHIEF WHO HAS AGREED TO PROVIDE POLICE
GUARDS AROUND THE AIR AMERICA INSTALLATION.

2. UDORN WILL BE REPORTING BY IMMEDIATE TELEGRAM TO THE DEPART-
MENT ABOUT THESE EVENTS AS THEY UNFOLD. WHILE THE STRIKE HAS SO
FAR GONE ALMOST UNNOTICED IN BANGKOK, WE WOULD HOPE, IN THE WAKE
OF THE SAKON NAKHON LETTER INCIDENT, TO AVOID ANY FURTHER CAUSE
CELEBRE THAT COULD EXACERBATE THAI-U.S. RELATIONS. WE THEREFORE
REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT APPRISE AIR AMERICA OF OUR CONCERN.
IT WOULD ALSO HELP TO URGE FLEXIBILITY ON THE PART OF AIR AMERICA
NEGOTIATORS IN UDORN, AS WELL AS IN THE TERMS AIR AMERICA OFFERS
THE STRIKERS.
