Hatfield United States Senator MOH: j hs Enclosure Approved For Release 2006/11/28: CIA-RDP81M01032R000700020010-3 January 2, 1979 The Honorable Mark 0. Hatfield Washington, D.C. Dear Senator: GREETINGS , AND HAPPY P+E:; YEAR Complete puzzlement was my reaction to a recent re'Dort by a newspaper columnist who stated that the C.I.A. actively recruits foreign students. Perhaps one of your assistants could explai^, and ans;ver the following: 1. Are the students recruited in their home land and brought in to the U.S. on scholarships? or who pays the educational and living costs? 2. What does C.I.A. expect from them? Hots -can C.I.A. evaluate any information received from them? Now there are more questions, With the TV report and pictures today of Iranian students in violent protest against relatives of the Shah in Los Angeles. Thanks for any help. Sinc erely, Lowell and Frances 101 anerud
