Mr. Colby began by emphasizing most positively that the U.S. Government cannot get along without us and that CIA does indeed "have a tomorrow." 2. He pointed out that American technology has been of tremendous help, particularly in regard to gaining knowledge of Soviet missile programs and capabilities. The DCI reported that President Ford had complete knowledge as to the number of Soviet missiles when he met recently in Vladivostok with Brezhnev. 3. The Director also made the following points: a. CIA's clandestine mission does have a tomorrow. He cited recent Congressional endorsements of the Agency's covert action program. b. He expressed considerable concern about the Agee book being published in January and discussed the problem of holding on to our secrets. c. He complimented OER for doing a "masterful job" in keeping track of world oil developments. d. Because of inflation, our objectives must be better focused and more limited. e. The DDS&T is working on some "dramatic ideas" for the future. f. One of his (Co .by's) major jobs is getting the Intelligence Community to work more closely together. 4. The Director made some interesting points during the question period: a. The Chile episode had considerable impact on our operations in Latin America. It is harder to recruit agents there, b. The Agency recommended veto of the Freedom of Information Act. The President's veto was overridden, and this will cause us some problems.

Will take 3 years to become really valuable. It's a slow process. d. We must get our product to the policymakers in the proper format. We have to compete for the minds of our high-level customers. Example: New NationalIntelli ence Daily (newspaper style) is being well receive d. An example ofwhat we have done for President Ford--we showed him films of Brezhnev--which gave Mr. President clues as to his style, mannerisms, language, etc.--before the meeting in Vladivostok.

The attached list contains the names of those in your Directorate who are scheduled to attend the 'CIA Today and Tomorrow. 25X1A 2. We urge you or your component training officers to contact each applicant individually to remind him of his enrollment in this course, and ask him (or her) to report to the Headquarters 'Auditorium at 0830 on Tuesday, 3 December. Since a number of training requests have been on file in OTR for several months, it is likely that some may forget that they are scheduled to attend this program. This happened in a number of cases at our October running. Since we expect an audience of about 200, it would be difficult for OTR to call each individual. 3. In view of -the fact that Mr. Colby and most of the other senior officials of the Agency will be appearing as speakers, we urgently invite your cooperation in this matter. 4. We would also appreciate being notified if any of those on this list will not be attending the program. Additional applications for the course (Form 73's) will be accepted by OTR through Wednesday, 27 November. S. Please call me or on extension 21.27 if you have any further questions about this program.

DDA Presentation a. Mr. Blake began, as he did in the last course, by complimenting OTR and the Training staff on developing this program, which provided an opportunity for senior Agency officials to communicate their ideas and hopes to large groups of Agency employees. b. He discussed briefly reasons behind the name change from DDMFS to DDA. c. He announced (for the first time publicly) the change in retirement policy, permitting those under the Civil Service System to retire at age 65. He stated that the DCI had just signed off on this. d. He felt one of our biggest challenges in the near future would be responding to the strict provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, from which CIA is not exempt. e. We hope to sell Air America this month. f. One of the most significant activities in OTR is the development of and tremendous interest in the Informa- tion Science Training Program. g. Our greatest financial problem is that 0MB fails to crank in an inflationary factor when reviewing our budget. 2. DDO Presentation a. Mr. Nelson (in one of the best and frankest presen- tations I have heard him give to an Agency-wide audience) began by maintaining that the Agency's most perplexing prob- lem is that of operating a secret intelligence organization DMTNIST ATIv1 -. li~s_:.ivlll, USE ONLY Approved For Release 2000/06/14: CIA-RDP79-0159OA000200110002-1 ADMINISTRATIVE - IiV 11,4NAL USF ' lLY Approved For Release 2006/14 : CIA-RDP79-01590A00020011W2-1 in an open society. Specifically preserving the secrecy of our relationships with agents in the field is becoming more and more difficult. b. There are still many "strong voices" in this country who feel we should not conduct secret operations. c. The DDO is now sure that Mr. Agee has defected to Cuban Intelligence and may be under the control of the KGB. d. Under the new Freedom of Information Act, certain people could conduct harassing operations against the Agency. e. USSR is still our #1 priority target. We are doin better in recruiting Soviet agents than we have since f. Our most recent major intelligence failure was g. We haven't yet been doing a good job in clandestine economic operations. Case officers need more training in economics. h. Although the President has endorsed the need for covert action, these activities will be greatly limited and probably under even tighter control. i. In the question period, one attendee complimented Mr. Nelson in his frankness, candor and openness. He also asked the DDO how more people in other Directorates could learn more about the activities and problems of his Director- ate. His response (paraphrased) was that OTR was making a fine effort in this direction, and he would particularly recommend that middle-level officers in other Directorates take the Midcareer Course. 2 1~iDMINISTEAT IVE - INT11RNAL USE ONLY Approved For Release 2000/06/14: CIA-RDP79-01590A000200110002-1
