W£'V£ AL READY TIGHTENED THE BELT.' in Disinformation (Continued from page 1) documents designed to show, at least implicitly, that the United States is at a disadvantage at times with the So viet Union because of Moscow’s pro pensity to spread lies through an “active measures” program. A report issued in October 1981 began by asserting that the Soviets two months earlier had attempted to blame the United States for the death of Panamanian leader Omar Torrijos and for the 1979 seizure of the Grand Mosque of Mecca. On Aug. 29 of this year, two Submarine weeks after the Post story claimed that the administration had ap proved the alleged disinformation campaign against Gadhafi, the State Department made public three doc uments it said were forgeries de signed to discredit U.S. foreign pol icy. Department officials were unable to identify the forgers but suggested that Moscow was the prime susptect. One of the documents was a speech in which Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger purportedly said the Strategic Defense Initiative was designed to give the United States a first strike capability. The State Department rep the forgery, which first surfaced West Germany, as a clear case information. nlrl Another torgery, mailed it Post and other publications, scribed an alleged United States! formation Agency campaign to sure that the West Europeans I would receive reports exaggerc the death and destruction resultc from the nuclear power accidtt: Chernobyl in the Soviet Ui April.

Sen. Sam Nunn of Georgia, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said, “The chances of any kind of nuclear detonation are very, very low.” Shultz and Nunn also said the So viets, apparently mindful of the crit icism after the nuclear disastei Chernobyl, seemed to be coopti ing in providing information aks the accident. “I think they got badly burnti Chernobyl because you can’t li these things no matter what,” Stj said, referring to the Soviets’4! 21- in reporting that accident.
