Mr. Reber informed me that the proposed revision of MC-33 was the only item on the IAC agenda and I requested that he cancel this weekts meeting. Later informed DCI. 2. During the day I had several chats with Generals Porter and Partridge respecting the proposed revision of MC-33. General Porter explained that any technical revision of MC-33 had been postponed. The sole issue was whether or not we would participate in preparing a paper answering the require- ments laid on by the Military planners. I indicated both to Generals Porter and Partridge that I could not make an intelligent decision on this until I had seen the requirement. This was later sent to me by General Porter and it closely approximated the terms of reference contained in-cable. In-25X1A9a formed Dr. Kent that I had withdrawn my commitment to participate and he suggested that, since he was involved in NIE-614, I carry on at this point with 25X1 A9a After seeing the terms of reference, I indicated to that I proposed 25X1A9a to let the Military carry on alone on this particular exercise primarily because I thought it ridiculous for the planners to expect intelligence to answer 25X1A9questions of this character in the time schedule laid on. It would be essential, owever, to inform what we were doing and why and also to indicate to the Military that it was no longer in their authority to copy an IAC paper and 25X1X7transmit it under the label JIC in view of the revision of 25X1A91SCID-1. concurred.
