Editorial comments:

This paper was considered at the Chiefs of Staff Committee at 1300Z, so time estimated afternoon immedaitely after the meeting. The paper at the end on the Chilean option has a page partially redacted, but it seems that the original page was accidentally left alongside it in the file. Read all documents on the site selected from this file.
