"To Prevent Israel..."; No, Not 2012

This was written in 1967.

While the original objective of the Control Group had been—starkly stated—to prevent the Israelis from striking the forces closing around them,

That is from point d9 of the Minutes of the Ninth Meeting of the Middle East Control Group11. Source: National Archives and Records Administration, RG 59, Office of the Executive Secretariat, Middle East Crisis Files, 1967, Entry 5190, Box 17, Minutes/Decisions of the Control Group, Folder 1. Secret; Washington, June 4, 1967, 11 a.m.

Is there a "control group" meeting now in Washington with the same aim?

Then it was Egypt and Syria and today, Iran?
