When Adlai Stevenson's representative gets in touch with General Cabell on 14 September to arrange for briefings as per the President's instructions, we can anticipate press inquiry as to: (1) Who will brief Mr. Stevenson? (2) Will Suez be included in briefings? (3) Will briefings be oral or in printed form? (t) How often will the briefings be given? (5) Will more than one official brief Mr. Stevenson? (6) Just what will, in general, be included in the briefings? 2. Recommend we answer inquiries with the statement that CIA will scrupulously carry out the President's instructions; that Mr. Stevenson will be briefed on the world in general and on such specific areas as he may request; that CIA may have one or more briefers, depending upon the situation; that briefings may be oral or written or a combination, as desired; that they will be given weekly, as a general rule, but that can be changed to meet Mr. Stevenson's wishes; that CIA will not identify the individuals who do the briefing nor will it make public the subject or the contents of any briefings.
