Approved For Release 2002/08/01 : CIA-RDP74B00415R000300130011-9 JOURNAL OFFICE OF LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL Tuesday - 27 June 1972 1. (Confidential - GLC) During the morning Jack Ticer, Chief Clerk, Senate Armed Services Committee, called. He said he had just stepped out of a Committee meeting at Senator Goldwater's request to raise with the Director personally the question of "If, in his opinion, SALT eliminates the need for SAM-D? " I told Ticer I thought this was a question which we would want to defer to someone else since we did not keep track of US weapons programs. However, on the instructions of the Director, I quoted the Director as saying "We in the Agency do not know what the current specifications for SAM-D are. Therefore, reluctantly, we are not in a position to have an opinion one way or the other or to be on one side or the other. " Later in the day Ticer told me he had passed the Director's message to Senator Goldwater and commented Goldwater was not happy with the Director's response and said he (Goldwater) hoped the Agency did not always do business that way. 2. (Confidential - GLC) I called Leonard Killgore, Administrative Assistant to Senator Barry Goldwater (R., Ariz.), and advised him of my earlier conversations with Jack Ticer, Senate Armed Services Committee staff. I told him we understood the Senator was not particularly happy with the Director's response but tried to explain to Killgore that we did not keep track of US weapons programs nor were we in the net assessment business and this is why the Director felt we could not state a position on this issue. I underscored that we, in fact, do not have the specifications on Sam D. Killgore explained he had attended committee hearings for Senator Goldwater during his recent absence because of illness and that he and the Senator had found only one instance in which a witness ever leveled with the committee on SALT and this was in off the record statements made by Secretary Laird on 6 June. He said all of this had left Goldwater quite exasperated with the testimony that has been given and he wanted to go to the one man he felt would give him an honest unbiased response. He said he appreciated the reasons why the Director felt he could not answer the Senator's question but thought it would be very useful if the Director called the Senator before his departure from Washington on Friday and explained this to him personally. The Director said he would give Goldwater a call in the next day or two.

(Secret - JGO) Met with Mr. George W. Ashworth, Senate Foreign Relations Committee staff, who asked if the Agency could provide the Committee with a brief survey of weather modification in Indochina. He said that this is a matter that Senator Pell (D. , R. I. ) has become quite interested in and that he has requested staff assistance in developing the question. I told him that with the exceptions of Senator Pell's short press release over the weekend concerning alleged weather modification of American forces over North Vietnam, I knew nothing of the modification and recommended to him that he refer the question to the Department of State. As a followon to last week's briefing he asked also if the Agency has any information concerning the possibility or engineering capability of the Soviets to increase the missile capacity of the Y-class submarine from 12 to 16 or more missiles. 8. (Secret - JGO) Met with Mr. Ralph Preston, House Appropriations Committee staff, who told me that his time for this week and part of next has been completely scheduled but he will meet with our people as soon as possible. I briefed him on the following items: North Vietnamese offensive toward Hue, action on the Bolovens Palteau, North Vietnamese concern over support by allies, Soviet delivery of the Flogger to frontal aviation, KY-9 test, orbit of an unmanned Soyuz spacecraft and the French nuclear test of 25 June. 9. (Confidential - JGO) Met with Mr. Jack Sullivan, House Foreign Affairs Committee staff, who told me with apologies thatthe Committee will have to change the 25 July date for possible meeting with the Director on verification of the SALT agreement. He will call as soon as the Chairman focuses on a new date. Mr. Sullivan asked if we could have a transcript and I reminded him that we have not had a transcript in the past in appearance before the Committee. This point will require further discussion. The present schedule of the Committee will be to have Messrs. Rogers and Laird on the first day of testimony, Admiral Moorer and another military witness on the second, and Mr. Helms on the third day to be followed by such members of Congress and private individuals as may request to be heard. The DCI has been advised. 10. (Internal Use Only - JGO) Met with Mr. Richard Moose, Senate Foreign Relations Committee staff, who told me that he has been working on behalf of the Foreign Relations Committee with representatives of the Senate Rules Committee and others concerning utilization of computer techniques. He anticipates that the question of development of a vocabulary for CommitUX1A use will arise within the next few weeks and asked if it mould be possible to meet with Agency personnel for informal discussion on the subject.

(Confidential - JMM) John Lehman, NSC staff, called to ask how the Director's appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday went. I said there were no major problems although the Director did get a number of questions about the validity of the "bargaining chips" theory i. e. , that we should proceed with our strategic weapons programs in order to maintain a bargaining position and, why the Soviets had been unwilling to declare the number of their ICBM launchers. I said none of these questions produced any fireworks or controversy. Lehman asked whether we had sent over to the White House a copy of the Director's prepared statement and I explained the Director had a policy of not releasing or coordinating his statements, since he felt to do so would have an adverse effect on his credibility as an independent voice. Lehman did not pursue the matter. 9. (Confidential - JMM) During the above conversation with'John Lehman, I explained the status of the "Case compromise" which would limit the application of Section 515 of the Foreign Assistance Authorization bill (S. 3390) to Thailand. Lehman said this sounded acceptable to the Administration and would check with State and then make their recommendations to Senator Dominick. 10. (Unclassified - JMM) Talked to Carl Mar-cwr, Staff Director, Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who described a rather tempestuous session of the Committee today when Chairman Fulbright had attacked Secretary Laird for exaggerating the Soviet threat in order to get money for defense programs and charged Laird with distorting intelligence for this purpose, citing the contrast between Laird's testimony and earlier testimony by CIA witnesses. 11. (Internal Use Only - LLM) Called Dick Schultz, House Internal Security Committee staff, and told him that I had looked into the status o Q4TOTHR I I and learned that he was notified in the middle of April It' we had no suitable vacancy, and subsequently, the application had been re- evaluated with the same result. As a consequence, if had pending job opportunities, I would recommend that he ought to accept them, explaining that we were just not hiring in the areas which he had expressed interest.. I also told him that the results of this most recent review would be most formally relayed back to Chairman Ichord. plans to 25X1A contact Mr. 0) (?ONFIW'EftJIAL Approved For Release 2002/08/01 : CIA-RDP74B00415R000300130011 Approved For Release 2002/08/01 : cj& '''7,4p00415R000300130011-9 Journal - Office of Legislative Counsel Page 7 Wednesday - 21 June 1972 25X1A 20.

(Secret - JGO) Met with Mr. Robert Lockhart, Assistant Counsel, House Post Office and Civil Service Committee, who told me that the Manpower Subcommittee cancelled last week and this week's meetings for consideration of the draft bill proposed by the Committee staff on Federal Executive Service (FES). The next meeting of the Manpower Subcommittee is scheduled for Thursday, 29 June, Mr. Lockhart noted that the FES bill reported by Senate Post Office and Civil Service Committee is poorly drafted and that the use of presidential authority to grant exemptions under the Act may well create more problems than it solves. Were the two bills to pass in their present form, Mr. Lockhart sees no question but that the House bill would be accepted in conference. The draft House bill has been closely coordinated with the Civil Service Commission and Mr. Seymour Berlin's office and although it does not contain everthing that the Commission desires, the provisions set forth in the bill are acceptable to the Commission. Mr. Lockhart noted again that he had our Agency comments on the original bill in front of him at the time this bill was drafted. He eliminated those sections that we found objectionable in the earlier bill. I thanked Mr. Lockhart for his advice and told him I would be back in touch with him.

(Secret - JGO) Talked to Ralph Preston, House Appropriations Committee staff, who told me that he met this afternoon with DOD Comptroller representatives on reprogramming items. These items included some matters related to the Agency. Mr. Preston told me the DOD people did not have any of the backup material relating to the Agency items and asked if we could meet with him at 11:00 tomorrow morning. Figures in question relate primarily to pay increases for which the material presented had been drawn up last February. Mr. Preston would like to review the manpower and dollar figures involved. OPPB, has been advised. 7. (Secret - JGO) Talked to Mr. Wayne Birdsall, commercial reporting firm of Ward and Paul, and arranged for security control of the transcripts of the DCI briefing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for Tuesday, 20 June.

(Unclassified - LLM) Yesterday Ray McRae, Minority Counsel, Subcommittee on Intergovernmental Relations, Committee on Government Operations, called to report that he had sent our proposed letter to Senator John McClellan (D. , Ark. ) on advisory committee legislation (S. 3529) to the former General Counsel of the Subcommittee for review and comments and asked if I would be available on call to meet with them if this became necessary. I told him that we would be happy to cooperate in any way and to just give us a call. McRae said now that Senator McClellan has won the primary election, it is possible that the pace of committee activities will increase. 15. (Unclassified - LLM) Yesterday the office of Representative Wayne Hays (D., Ohio) called and said that the Congressman was interested in having a copy of the China Atlas.

(Internal Use Only - LLM) Al Westphal, House Foreign Affairs Committee Staff Consultant, called to report that he had been successful in getting the conferees to accept our modification of the little Hoover Commis- sion provision in the USIA/State authorization bill (S. 3526) based upon the material which I had given him on 8 June. The modification was designed to resolve any conflict between the Commission's authority to obtain information and the Director's responsibility for protecting intelligence sources and methods, etc. I thanked Mr. Westphal for his help and told him that I knew the Director and Mr. Maury would be very grateful.

(Confidential - GLC) Received a call from who said that during Secretary Laird's testimony before the Defense Sub- committee of Senate Appropriations Committee Senator Symington commented about the fact that Secretary Laird had provided for the open record figures on Soviet missile inventory. He added these same figures were being treated as classified and extremely sensitive by the Director of Central Intelligence in testimony before another committee of which Symington was a member. I explained to II that Senator Symington was undoubtedly referring to the Director's appearance in executive session before the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy. 9. (Confidential - GLC) Talked to Bill Woodruff, Counsel, Senate Appropriations Committee, about Senator Symington's comments at the Defense Subcommittee meeting this afternoon and he verified that Senator Symington had expressed his confusion over the fact that the same figures were being treated as sensitive in one briefing and unclassified elsewhere. Senator Symington also said the Director would be asked to testify before congressional committees on U. S. national means of verification. 10. (Secret - GLC) Handcarried to the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy 19 additional copies of the Director's prepared statement for the use of the Committee members and staff during the Director's briefing today.

(Secret - JMM) Bill Miller, of Senator John Sherman Cooper's (R. , Ky.) office, called to say the Senator was interested in any comments on the New York Times story quoting Laird on Soviet MIRV tests. I said we didn't know what the Secretary had said, but on the basis of intelligence estimates available it appeared that the press story was garbled and that the Defense Department would be the people to straighten it out. 9. (Secret - JMM) Called Dorothy Fosdick, in Senator Jackson's office, to say that we had no evidence supporting some of the points made in a New York Times story attributed to testimony by Secretary Laird. I speculated the story was the result of a garble and suggested the people to straighten it out was the Defense Department since they knew what the Secretary had said and we didn't.

The information was to be included in a reply by the Joint Chiefs to an inquiry from Senator Hartke. Col. Ginsberg had made this request initially with DIA; however, the CIA analyst referred the inquiry to Legislative Counsel in view of the congressional interest. CRS, informed me that there is limited information which is c assn ie concerning Henri(a French newsman who has been in Hanoi for 2 years) which can be released to the Joint Chiefs. I subsequently called Col. Ginsberg. However, he declined the information as he felt it better to deal with Senator Hartke on an unclassified basis.

The offices of Messrs. Steininger, ADD/S&T, and Proctor, DDI, have been advised. I also discussed with him the Committee request for a spread sheet on tactical intelligence programs of the Department of Defense. Mr. Preston indicated that as was discussed during the meeting with the Special Intelligence Group this is a matter of strong interest but that the Chairman understands that at this stage we will, of necessity, have to deal in "round numbers" rather than technical detail. I thanked Mr. Preston for the advice. IC, 25X1A 2.

STATOTHR 9. (Secret - GLC) At lunch today I talked with Bill Woodruff, Co;unsel, Senate Appropriations Committee, about our intention to give Ralph Preston, House Appropriations Committee staff, a thorough briefing on the sensitive readout program. Woodruff thought this would be highly desirable, commenting that if Preston had difficulty with this program it could present a real problem. Woodruff said he had provided Preston with all of his background files on the program in an effort to bring him up to speed. Woodruff also commented in confidence that Tom Scott, Chief Clerk, Senate Appropriations Committee, might decide to retire by the end of this month. If Scott should retire and Woodruff is elevated to his position, this will pose a very real staff problem in connection with the handling of the Defense Subcommittee (and CIA) matters since Woodruff feels it would be out of the question to have the Chief Clerk handle DOD matters in addition to his other responsibilities. At the present time there is no one on the Committee staff who is capable of taking over the work which Woodruff is presently handling. STATOTHR 10.
