Otto feels that to allow GAO full access to ORR would reveal a substantial amount of information about our clandestine activities. I told him and that if this were, in fact, the case we, of course, would draw the curtain IdWe ground rules. However, I em- phasized to both of them that clandestinity and not classification per se was the criter- ion and that they should lean over backwards to comply fully with the spirit of our ground rules. 5. Jim Garrison telephoned to say that he needed $25,000 more in order to award 25X1 A6a a contract for the construction I told him to go ahead and on 28 June I signed a paper confirming this oral approval.
