This article proposes interrelated changes in the current foreign policy machinery of the U.S. as of April 1977. It is proposed that the two chambers of Congress establish a new Joint Committee on International and Domestic Affairs. The membership of the proposed new Joint Committee would be made up of the chairman and the ranking minority member of each of the committees of each house that regularly deals with a significant fragment of the international affairs of the country. Assuming a cabinet that is accustomed to meeting in panels, and that has a cabinet staff, there should be created one such panel on a standing basis to deal with intermestic issues--the International and Domestic Affairs Council. Finally, it is proposed that it is time that the logic of the situation not only be noted but followed.
