The Bush Administration, its military aid plan for non-Communist rebels in Cambodia stalled on Capitol Hill, has decided that it would accept a compromise solution for a new government in that nation involving shared power between Prince Norodom Sihanouk and the present Vietnamese-backed regime, The Times has learned. By agreeing to endorse the sort of settlement that it previously had scorned, the Administration has given Sihanouk, its favorite Cambodian leader, important maneuvering room to negotiate a deal that would freeze out the Khmer Rouge, the murderous Communist faction blamed for the deaths of more than a million Cambodians when it ruled the nation between 1975 and 1978.

Sihanouk, the head of a three-faction resistance coalition seeking to oust the Vietnamese-installed Phnom Penh government, has come under growing criticism in recent months for his relations with the radical Khmer Rouge.

As a direct result of the Iran- contra scandal, Congress is moving to put strict new controls on the clandestine military assistance that President Reagan has been giving to anti-Communist insurgencies around the globe. Under the policy known as the Reagan Doctrine, the Administration funnels millions of dollars through the CIA each year to rebel groups in Afghanistan, Angola and Cambodia as well as to the anti-Sandinista forces in Nicaragua.

Reflecting the thaw in the Cold War, Congress is on the verge of hobbling all three ongoing covert U.S. military operations, including cutting about $50 million from the Bush Administration's $300-million request for rebels in Afghanistan, sources said Tuesday. The actions, believed to be the first substantial curtailment of the secret U.S. proxy wars in more than a decade, signal growing congressional impatience with the operations.

The House Intelligence Committee will press the Bush Administration this week to lift the official veil of secrecy on America's three largest covert programs--aid to anti-Communist rebels in Afghanistan, Angola and Cambodia. In what would be a sweeping change in U.S. intelligence policy, the powerful committee will call on the government to abandon the long-cherished practice of running such huge military aid programs as secret operations.

The Senate, by a vote of 59 to 39, adopted an amendment by Sen. Charles Robb (D-Va.) that opens the way for President Bush to make unspecified military aid available to the non-communist resistance forces in Cambodia allied with Prince Norodom Sihanouk. The amendment is similar to one already passed by the House. Robb said it does not directly authorize military aid but does give the President the "flexibility" to ask authorization for it at a later time.
