Oversight or Overlook: Congress and the U.S. Intelligence Agencies

views of House Intelligence Subcommittee chairman (1974),


 Congressional Oversight

We are, in the end, you and I, jointly trying to preserve the fundamental processes of our free society.
It will help if we understand each other. And so I'll close with a personal recollection.
I recall a meeting I had here with then-director Richard Helms in which I told him, "you've been very cooperative in answering my questions. The trouble is I'm not sure I'm asking the right questions."
  "You're getting there," he smiled, "You're getting there."    
  Well, I hope I am getting there, and if I'm not, I'd like your help.
