Deteriorating security in a Palestine facing insurgency and on the brink of civil war was coupled with opposition to British policy, particularly over immigration, from the White House. President Truman saw a solution to the Jewish displaced persons problem, and as early as July 1945, asked Winston Churchill at the Potsdam Conference to lift restrictions on Jewish entry into Palestine. The following month Truman sent a letter to the new British Prime Minister Clement Attlee enclosing the Harrison Report.

This was noted by Foreign Office and State Department officials as reports emerged from the field that Britain was being accused of complicity in the Palestinian exodus. For example, after the fall of Haifa in April 1948, it was reported that Arab leaders, in an attempt to save face, were blaming Britain for the departure of Arabs from the city. 7 Accusations were circulated that there had been an agreement between Britain and the Haganah to expel Arabs from their homeland. 8 Even though the US did not have soldiers on the ground or administrative responsibility, like Britain, it saw the potential of increased Arab anger because of the refugee problem.
