 A commentary by Franklin H. Williams that was taped for broadcast. The statement concerns a June 23 speech about Southern Africa by Under Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger. Williams argues that Eagelburger is ignoring information from the U.S. Consulate in Johannesburg about the great significance of U.S. financial support for South Africa – and the potential impact of disinvestment on the South African economy. This is revealed by secret cables released by TransAfrica. The commentary also mentions constructive engagement, apartheid, and Jennifer Davis of the American Committee on Africa (ACOA).
