Editorial comments: Around 1400? MT arrived at Orly at 1305 and drove to the US Embassy. The diary of White House staffer Jim Rentschler records her visit and some of the political arguments that preceded it (Secretary of State Haig vainly trying to persuade the President to let him attend rather than see MT one-on-one).
