MEMORANDUM FOR

THE SECRETARY OF STATE
THE DIRECTOR OF CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE

I am attaching a copy of Presidential Directive/NSC-59 for your information and appropriate but close-hold use. A small part of the pre-planned options section has been deleted because it contains sensitive information █████████████ not normally held outside the Department of Defense and the White House. This small deletion in no way alters the sense and content of the remainder of the directive.
