Allen and Paul J. Scott in early -1962 developed indications that classified information, sometimes code word material, was being utilized as the basis for a high per- centage of their columns. Although much oi the information contained in the columns was garbled, it was apparent that key points were frequently direct quotes from classified reports and summaries of recent vintage. � The Director of Security received a requirement from the DCI in March 1962 to attempt through appropriate investigative activity to determine, if possible, the identities of the source or sources of classified information to the two newsmen. it was recommended to the DCI that telephonic monitoring would be the most productive. In addition, certain investigation limited to discreet checks of records sources was recommended. With approval of the DCI, around the clock telephone monitoring was conducted of telephone lines to each of the newsmen's homes and to the office which they shared jointly. (b)(3) (b)(3) The activity was continued until mid-June 1962, at which time the tele- phonic coverage was discontinued to coincide with the retirement of the Director of Security. Knowledge of the activity, beyond a limited few in the Office of. Security directly involved in processing the acquired data, is indicated as being limited to the DCI, the DDCI, the Executive Director-Comptroller and the General Connsel. Subsequently the DCI advised that he had briefed the Attorney General, the Secretary of Defense and the Director of the Defense Intelligs.ence Agency. Regular briefings of the DCI were conducted by the Director of Security throughout the tunure of the operation. Information Developed: Project Mockingbird was extremely productive in developing sources of data, both classified and unclassified, to the two newsmen, as a result of a daily telephone conversation the two men would conduct after the senior mem- ber of the team, Col. Robert S. Allen, would complete the re-write of raw data left for him in the office by Paul J. Scott. It became apparent that Scott acquired most of the sensitive data, and that he acquired it in highly accurate form. The obvious garbling of the data occurred in the re-write by Col. Allen. At first it was believed that the garbling was a by-product of Col. Allen's reiu- lar state of intoxication; however, SECRET EYES NLY MOCKINGBIRD (b)(3) (b)(3) Approved for Release: 2020/01/14 CO2353962 IV ILI 1.1 1.1`4 .LJ � Approved for Release: 2020/01/14 CO2353962 - The newsmen's sources were wide-ranging, and much of the information provided to them by these sources never saw print. In a number of cases the writers specifically noted that such-and-such an item could not be used in any form because it could be directly attributed to the source. During its short tenure, MOCKINGBIRD established the identities of significant number of sources and "cooperative" individuals. Much of this information was of a partisan political nature or was in the nature In those cases of direct interest to the purpose of MOCKINGBIRD, i.e. national defense information, it was possible in many cases to establish a specific iden- tity of the source providing the information. In other cases, it was pos- sible to establish only a general, non-specific, identification of source, such-as "my friends over in Navy," "he works right in their office," etc. Because of the frequent compromise of sources by the newsmen, either by name or essential elements which could lead to identification of an individual, it became apparent that over an extended period of time most, if not all, such sources could be identified, (As noted earlier, it was de- cided to terminate MOCKINGBIRD with the retirement of the Director of Security, rather than to continue the activity for a more desirable period cc Sources of information of all sorts used by Col. Allen and Scott can be generalized as follows: The Speaker of the House Members of the Senate and House of Representatives Congressional Staff members Members of the News Media Employees and staff members of the White House, the Department of State, the Department of Defense, the Agency for International Develo/pment, the Department of Justice, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Central Intelligence Agency Staff members of the Office of the Vice President The Republican and Democratic National Committees Lobbyists Retired Federal officers and officials Miscellaneous others, ranging from a union official to a priest There appeared to be a fairly clear division of source types between Col. Allen and Paul Scott, which might be generalized as follows: a. Col. Allen appeared to have most of his contacts among former Army associates and Col. Kehm, for example) and "old New Deal" personalities, (Oscar Chapman, for example).

Paul Scott, by far the most active of the two men, had the remaining contacts. 'Monitors of MOCKINGBIRD were frequently amazed at the sheer bulk of information Scott would acquire in the course of a day. Most of the highly classified information mentioned as such in the conversations is directly attributable to Scott's sources. Scott made frequent reference to his close association with the Speaker of the House, and in one discussion with his White House source promised a "McCormack cigar" in exchange for a report he sub- sequently received from White House records. (Scott had taken a leave of absence from the column the previous year to assist in the unsuccessful political bid of the Speaker's nephew.) MOCKINGBIRD was not successful during its three months of operation in identifying Col. Allen and Scott's source or sources in this Agency. The prin- ciple source of concern, Mr. "(", appeared to be in the Office of National Estimates. A blind memo regarding him, including references to his written comments on certain National Estimates and statements he is supposed to have made, was shown by the Director of Security to Mr. Sherman Kent. Mr. Kent was not aware of MOCKINGBIRD as the source. Mr. Kent subsequently ad- vised the Director of Security that he was unable to identify "Mr. X" from the information provided. One significant factor developed by MOCKINGBIRD was the ability of the newsmen to obtain warnings or guidance regarding possible threats to their activities. For example: a. In mid-March 1962,. Paul Scott advised Col. Allen that they were under investigation by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations as a re- sult of their accurate overflight stories. According to Scott, the Secretary of Defense had directed the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency to conduct an investigation of the newsmen in an attempt to develop their sources. The Director of DIA Subsequently held a meeting with regarding the pro- posed conduct of the investigation. A "friend" of Scott's was present in a office when a participant of the meeting was discussing it with other personnel. Because there were too many people present at the time, the "friend" was unable to obtain full details. Subsequently, the "friend" was able to obtain further details, had discussed such an in- vestigation with the a week or so earlier. He was not told, at the time, of MOCKINGBIRD, but it was suggested that he initiate no investigative action. When the foregoing information was obtained, .he was immediately 'briefed on and shown the transcript of the pertainent conversations. General Carroll insisted that he had adhered to the instruction and that the meeting described by Scott had not taken place.) b. In May 1962, Col. Allen indicated that he had recently been visited by a man from CIA, an old Army friend, "Stanley." The apparent tenor of (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) Approved for Release: 2020/01;14 CO2353962 Approved for Release: 2020/01/14 CO2353962 'goof of the meeting dealt with "pot shots" being taken at the DCI and the DCI's concern that the Administration was planning to "unload him or kick him upstairs." In a subsequent conversation, Paul Scott advised Col. Allen that he (Scott) had been cautioned to be a little careful in what he said to "Col. Grogan." Col. Grogan, he said, is very close to another person in CIA, with loyalty like that to Mr. McCone. Scott indicated that his source had advised that Col. Grogan had "a couple of meetings" with this other, unnamed, person "this week," and that Col. Grogan's visits to Col. Allen "may be both friendly and a surveillance job." (Col. Grogan was not aware of MOCKINGBIRD, but was cooperating with the Director of Security because of the mutual concern at Col. Allen and Scott's classi- fied revelations. He, indeed, had met with the Director of Security both prior to and after his visit to Col. Allen.) Scott's source of this informa- tion was never identified. Attached is a list of contacts and sources of Col. Allen and Paul Scott. Those indicated by an asterisk provided information to them, ranging from incidental political data to sensitive military information. Parenthetical numbers indicate a specific report in the attached MOCKINGBIRD notebook. Those for which no number appears are those persons identified in other conversations. These latter conversations were not transcribed because they did not deal directly with the inforruation leakage of concern.

Allen and Paul J. Scott, syndicated news columnists whose columns appear in the Northern Virginia Sun newspaper. According to an undated and unsigned memorandum (Tab 1) in the Project MOCKINGBIRD file; routine review of the daily syndicated column of Scott and Allen in early 1962 developed indications that classified information, sometimes codeword material, was being utilized as the basis for a percentage of their columns, and although much of the in- formation in the columns was garbled, it was apparent that key points were frequently direct quotes from classified reports and summaries of recent vintage. (While there are no copies of the columns available in the file, there are memo- randa referring to some of the articles in question. These memoranda are attached as (Tab 2). (Tab 1) referred to above under Background indicates that the Director of Security received a requirement from the DCI in March 1962 to attempt, through appropriate investigative activity, to determine if possible the identities of the source or sources of the classified information to the newsmen. it was recommended to the IJU.L tflate monitoring would be productive. According to the (Tab 1) memorandum, the DCI approved the telephone monitoring of each of the newsmen's homes and the office which. they shared jointly. (Knowledge of the activity, beyond a limited number of Office of Security pproved for Release: 2020/01/14 CO2353962 Approved for Release: 2020/01/14 CO2353962 Niw.v/ Ctr Niirroe RESPONSIBILITY: THE OPERATION : RESULTS personnel, was limited in the Agency to the DCI, DDCI and Executive Director- Comptroller). According to (Tab 1), the Office of Security had the responsibility for carrying out the operation. While the Office of Security, through the Director of Security, received a requirement from the DCI to attempt through investigative activity to determine the identities of the source or sources of information to the two newsmen, the Office of Security recommended to the DCI and received his approval to conduct telephone monitoring of the newsmen. There is no indication in the file relative to reporting arrange- ments, however, a former Office of Security employee familiar with the project and now assigned to another Agency component advised on 8 January the project reporting and was carried out verbally. 1975 that direction According to (Tab 1), the operation began in March 1962 and was discontinued in mid- June 1962 to coincide with the retirement of the D/OS. These times are at variance with logs housed in the Office of the Chief,. SSD, which indicate that the opera- tion began on 12 March 1963 and ended on 17 June 1963. As previously indicated, the telephones of the homes and the joint- ly shared office of the newsmen were tapped. There is no indication in the file or logs as to the location of the listening post and equipment. Coverage, according to the logs, was 24 hours a day. According to (Tab 1), Project MOCKINGBIRD was extremely productive in developing sources of data, both classified and un- classified, to the newsmen. These sources are listed in (Tab 1) and (Tab 3). It is not clear from the record whether all of 2 SECRET (b)(3) Approved for Release: 2020/01/14 CO2353962 Approved for Release: 2020/01/14 CO2353962 +A.

The files con- tain transcripts of the telephone taps but there is no indication of any formal reports, attributable to the transcripts, ,being prepared for forwarding to higher authority, with the possible exception of the attached (Tab 4) memoranda. MOCKINGBIRD was not successful in identi- fying the source or sources of the news- men in CIA, TERMINATION According to (Tab 1), the operation was terminated to coincide with the retire- ment of the Director of Security. No final financial accounting of time and � cost appears in the files. THOSE WITTING A list of those witting of the operation is attached (Tab 5).
