Newly-elected and embattled head of a country battered from all sides as nearby US Carrier-based Navy A6 and A7 fighter bombers pound Syrian Army positions in retaliation. The week of intense diplomacy ended with the President abruptly changing the direction of US policy in the Middle East. There was trouble in supporting Gemayel, a scion of Lebanon's Christian Community and the son of Pierre Gemayel, founder of the Phalangist Party; in effect, it had the administration backing just one faction in Lebanon's bloody war. This also singles out Syria as the enemy, and its President Assad as the adversary. July 22, 1963
