Under Fire and on the Attack

March 1976
Time;3/22/1976, Vol. 107 Issue 12, p18
The article focuses on the controversies involving U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. It mentions that both Republican and Democratic Parties criticized his foreign policies. According to Kissinger, the combination of criticism of both parties, where one hinders the arm-control negotiations and disrupts ties with Soviet Union, while the other thwarts American opposition to Soviet adventurism and urges the cutting the defense budgets, will weaken the nation's ability to carry responsible foreign policy. Meanwhile, Kissinger was involved in another controversy wherein Edward R. F. Sheehan, a Harvard International Affairs researcher, was exposed to have access to confidential State Department documents while working on a book on Kissinger's shuttle diplomacy in the Middle East.
