All sections relating to CINCPAC’s threat assessment for China were withheld in full from the 1977 Command History. Given the discretionary disclosure demonstrated by the partial release of previous and subsequent China assessments, the complete denial was clearly an error and a new request for the 1977 sections is currently under processing. The new material will be made available when completed.

Commander in Chief, U.S. Pacific Command, “CINCPAC Command History 1977,” September 1, 1978. (forthcoming)
