The Treasury Department has quietly reopened an internal investigation to determine whether U.S. Customs Service officials were pressured five years ago into prematurely ending an undercover operation to break up a plot to sell $70 million in arms abandoned in Vietnam, officials said. Sources in Washington said the new probe was launched because officials believe an inquiry in 1993 into the abrupt end of the weapons investigation, code-named Operation Leatherneck, was not complete.
