The mailing says President Reagan's comment on covert aid to UNITA in Angola shows how far along the U.S. government is in entering into the conflict in southern Africa. A number of bills are before Congress that would authorize military and non-military aid for UNITA. Rep. Claude Pepper has introduced a bill that would provide non-lethal support for the faction in Angola allied with the Pretoria regime. The other draft legislation would supply UNITA with military hardware or a mixture of military and non-military aid. The mailing asks people to urge members of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees to condemn openly and fight against this enterprise in Southern Africa.
