------ TOLD ME TODAY IN STRICT CONFIDENCE ARMY IS DEVELOPING SPECIFIC
PLANS FOR TAKEOVER OF GOVERNEMENT MOMENT SUKARNO STEPS OFF STAGE. had
just COME FROM MEETING WITH GENERAL PARMAN WHO HAD DISCUSSED PLANS
WITH HIM.------- said that ALTHOUGH PLANNING WAS BEING DONE ON
CONTIGENCY BASES WITH AN EYE TO POST-SUKARNO ERA STRONG SENTIMENT
EXISTED AMONG IMPORTANT SEGMENT TOP MILITARY COMMAND FOR TAKEOVER
PRIOR DEMISE SUKARNO. WHETHER THIS HAPPENED WOULD DEPEND UPON EVENTS
OF NEXT FEW WEEKS CONFLICTING PRESSURES WERE BUILDING UP TO SUCH A
PITCH THAT IN HIS OWN OPINION ARMY MIGHT BE FORCED TO TAKE ACTION
WITHIN NEXT 30 TO 60 DAYS TO OFFSET PKI MOVES. COMMUNISTS WERE
BUILDING UP PARAMILITARY FORCES AND BEGINNING TO ARM THESE FORCES, HE
SAID. ARMY INTELLIGENCE WAS AWARE OF THESE LOCATIONS, HOWEVER, AND
PLANS CONTEMPLATED IMMEDIATE ISOLATION OF THESE CENTERS WHEN MOMENT
FOR ACTION ARRIVED.

THERE WAS NO REPEAT NO SENTIMENT AMONG ANY OF MILITARY LEADERSHIP TO
MOVE AGAINST SUKARNO, HOWEVER --------- emphasized -------- IF
MILITARY WERE FORCED TO MOVE IN NEAR FUTURE, WHILE THEY MIGHT PRESENT
SUKARNO WITH FAIT ACCOMPLI, COUP WOULD BE HANDLED IN SUCH A WAY AS TO
PRESERVE SUKARNO'S LEADERSHIP INTACT EVEN THOSE WHO WERE CRITICIZING
SUKARNO'S LEADERSHIP, SAID, WERE CONVINCED THAT THERE WAS NO
POSSIBILITY OF ANY COUP SUCCEEDING AGAINST SUKARNO. HE WAS STILL
BELOVED OF THE MASSES.
