State Department officials Wednesday declined to comment on the request by Sen. James Abourezk (D.SD) that the United States investigate whether any Israeli military aid for Christians in southern Lebanon under Palestinian attacks involves U.S. equipment. Abourezk wrote President Carter and Secretary of State Cyrus Vance that any transfer by Israel of U.S. supplied weapons to a third party without the President’s prior consent would violate the Arms Export Control Act.
