STATLER CHIEF COUNSEL TO THE MINORITY 67407, =)o~L The Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations is examining Federal narcotics efforts, with particular emphasis on the Drug Enforcement Administration. It would be most beneficial to our efforts, and a valuable contribution to our hearing record, to have a statement from you on behalf of the Central Intelligence Agency addressed to your interpretation of the CIA's narcotics intelligence gathering functions under Executive Order 11905, released February 18, 1976. We are interested in how the CIA collects foreign narcotics intelligence, and how and by whom that intelligence is evaluated and disseminated to other agencies, such as Customs, the State Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Additionally, we are interested in any overlaps that exist between your narcotics intelligence gathering activities and those of DEA, as well as any problems which may be a result of any such overlaps. We are tentatively scheduling our next set of hearings for the week of August 23. We would like to have you available for an appearance during that week, if convenient. In any event, we would like your statement for inclusion in the record and for dissemination at that time. We will notify you of a specific date of your appearance as soon as possible.
