TprnuArLF U,7rg D1AR1tYN JAIL FOR NAMING CIA AGENTS? NOTE: This fall congressional com- mittees considered, but did not vote on, legislation that would make it a crime for anyone, including a newspaper re- Porter, to disclose the names of secret American intelligence agents. The proposal is likely to be reintroduced this January. Floyd Abrams and Frank Carlucci have markedly different views about it. Their essays are adapted from testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. BY FRANK C. CARLUCCI There exists today a small and appar- ently interrelated coterie of Americans who have openly devoted themselves to the destruction of certain of the Na- tion's authorized institutions of govern- ment, namely, the foreign intelligence agencies. This group includes a small number of renegade former CIA em- ployees, such as Philip Agee, and a larger group of Americans who have capitalized on disclosures of classified information made in the past by such renegade former employees. This group has engaged in a course of action openly and avowedly under- taken in order to destroy the Nation's intelligence-gathering capability through the medium of exposing as many undercover intelligence officers and agents as possible. The perpetrators of these disclosures understand correct- ly that secrecy is the lifeblood of an intelligence organization and that dis- closures of undercover identities can disrupt. discredit and-they hope- even ultimately destroy an agency such as the CIA. The two principal organs of such exposure have been a series of books written and edited by these indi- viduals and a publication, Covert Ac- tion Information Bulletin, published here in Washington, D.C. These have disclosed cumulatively approximately 1,500 to 1,600 names, many correct and many incorrect. In addition, per- sons such as Agee and Louis Wolf, one of the editors of Covert Action Informa- tion Bulletin, have traveled to various foreign countries. to carry on a cam- paign dedicated to stirring up local an- tagonism to U.S. officials through what appears to me to be only thinly veiled incitements to violence. 'I he tragic results of this activity are, well known. Five years ago Richard Welch was murdered in Athens, Greece. Mr. Welch was first alleged to be CIA Chief of Station, Lima, Peru, in the 1974-75 winter edition of Counter- spy. On November 25, 1975, the Athens Daily News printed a letter to the editor in which a number of U.S. Government employees-including Mr. Welch-were alleged to be CIA officers. Included in that article were Frank Carlucci is the deputy director of Mr. Welch's Athens home address and telephone number. Less than a month after the article appeared in the Athens Daily News, Mr. Welch was brutally gunned down in front of his home. A few weeks ago only luck intervened to prevent the death of the young daughter of a U.S. citizen employed by the U.S. Embassy in Jamaica whose house was shot up only days after Mr. Wolf ap- peared in Jamaica and, at a highly publicized news conference, gave the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and license plate numbers and descrip- tions of the cars of U.S. government employees whom he alleged to be CIA officers. I think it unnecessary to go into detail about the adverse effects this behavior is having on the work of the Nation's intelligence agencies. Simply put, our officers willingly have accepted the risks necessarily inherent in their taxing and dangerous occupation. They have not accepted the risk of being stabbed in the back by their fellow countrymen and of being left unprotected by their Nation's Government. The failure of the Congress to act so far has had a demoralizing effect. Refusal to enact effective legislation in the face of most recent developments would be incom- prehensible to them. I stress the word "effective." Everyone who has any familiarity with this problem knows full well that a criminal statute limited only to disclosures made by employees and former employees would not pro- vide the kind of relief we need. Enact- ment of such a statute would be little more than a misrepresentation to the public and a cruel disappointment to our personnel. Let me turn now to the policy advisability and constitutional status of the controversial portions of these bills. As an introductory comment, I would like to say that I have seen numberless discussions of the constitutional rights of Messrs. Agee and Wolf and compa- ny, but almost nothing as to the consti- tutional implications of what they are trying to do. Their purpose is no less than, by direct action, to destroy insti- tutions of government that our constitu- tional authorities, the President and the Congress, have authorized to exist and operate. They are taking the law into their own hands. Nothing could be more subversive of our constitutional system of government than to permit a disgruntled minority of citizens freely to thwart the will of the majority. I recognize the great importance of the First Amendment, but I have never understood that the First Amendment is the entire Constitution of the United States, and I suggest to the Senate Ju- diciary Committee-as I understand the Supreme Court's interpretation of the First Amendment actually to be- that First Amendment considerations must be balanced against other compel- ling constitutional requirements, in- cluding the inherent constitutional right of the people of this country to have an effective defense against external ag- gression, a defense that necessitates a working intelligence system. Now I would like to address a key factual element in this situation that seems to be widely misunderstood. There is no unclassified document that identifies undercover employees or agents of the CIA. Neither the House nor the Senate version of this legisla- tion would purport to criminalize the mere disclosure of an identity that had been acknowledged by the U.S. Gov- ernment in any such document. It is Approved claimed by some opponents of these bills that the activity on which they would impact consists merely of pick- ing information out of certain unclassi- fied publications in which the U.S. Government, through carelessness, has allowed the names of CIA officers to be revealed. This is simply nonsense. Some critics of this legislation have suggested that it would open up to prosecution any person who came across a classified intelligence identity, including a journalist who exposed such an identity in the course of a legiti- mate story on CIA activities or alleged CIA wrongdoings. This simply is not the case, as any careful reading of ei- ther the Senate or the House version would demonstrate. The version before the Senate requires that the actor be en- gaged in a pattern of activities intended to identify and expose covert agents and with reason to believe that such ac- tivities would impair or impede intelli- gence activities of the United States. In short, the bill describes a very narrow category of persons engaged in a cru- sade whose commonly recognizable ef- fect is to destroy intelligence activities in general and who furthers that pur- pose by doing much more than merely restating that which is in the public do- main. A second canard about this legisla- tion ghat I would like to lay to rest is that it is unnecessary because anything that a private citizen can uncover can also be uncovered by the KGB. Even if true, this observation is irrelevant. I question its accuracy because, as Americans, the publishers of Covert Action Informa- tion Bulletin probably have easier ac- cess to misguided or duped sources of information within Government agen- cies than would the KGB. A third and increasingly important consideration is to protect against ter- rorist attacks such as that which caused the death of Richard Welch and almost caused the death of Richard Kinsman and other U.S. Government employees in Jamaica. What the Congress can do is protect us from the malicious and deliberate acts of Americans who are bent on our destruction, acts that exacerbate the inherent difficulties present in our oper- ating conditions overseas. NO BY FLOYD ABRAMS The naming or listing of undercover intelligence officers, agents, inform- ants and sources by any of their col- leagues is an outrage; those who engage in such activities disgrace themselves and disserve both their colleagues and their country. Without covert intelli- gence operations, we would lose much Floyd Abrams is a partner at Cahill Gordon & Reindel in New York who specializes in First Amendment work. 1lLUSTRATION BY CHARLES WALLER ~AAnuo 102 17 Approvo, THE AMERICAN LAWYER IS NOW AVAILABLE AT THESE BOOKSTORES AND NEWSSTANDS IN ILLINOIS AND WISCONSIN.

" Ashton covered her main point in a crisp, firm and knowing delivery that no doubt did much to make up for the turgid brief the state had filed. Aware that the court has been increasingly hostile to the Fifth Amendment self-in- crimination clause, she simply dwelled on the point that the Court should resist any extension of the clause to limit testimony on punishment after the ver- dict is in. When it was time for rebuttal, she rose and swept smartly through her an- swers to Berger. As matters stood then, Ashton had saved more time than she would need; Berger had not been at his best. Ashton thus was about to wind up early. She wanted to make one further point: if defendant Ernest Benjamin Smith, Jr., had been so troubled about the psychiatrist's testimony that Smith had shown no remorse when inter- viewed, Smith "could have taken the stand and said he was sorry he did it." Blackmun, hunched over his papers, looked up and asked, "Could the state call Smith as a witness at that stage?" "No, your honor, it could not," Ashton answered confidently. "Given your answer," Blackmun returned, "how does that apply to your argument that the Fifth Amendment does not apply to that phase?" Ashton had an answer, but it did not resuscitate her point. "The Fifth Amendment," she said unconvincing- ly, "should not be used to prohibit the use of testimony that forms the basis for an expert opinion." Justice Thurgood Marshall, keenly aware that Ashton had not gotten out of Blackmun's trap and apparently wish- ing to keep her there, asked: "What if Texas had a statute that said that, at a bifurcated trial, a psychiatrist could determine the sentence? Would that violate due process?" Yes, she said, it would. "An expert witness may not determine an issue of fact that a jury must consider," Marshall's question had sounded be- side the point, and her answer was solid, but the exchange did not come out in her favor. It did not alter the im- pression that Ashton's rebuttal had got- ten cleanly away from her. Had she passed up rebuttal al- together, her case would have been in much better shape. Joel Berger had got- ten into needless verbal combat with the Court and had displayed too often an unpleasant way of starting his an- swers with "well . . . " in a tone sug- gesting that questions were getting in his way. His brief was notably stronger. It marshaled the Fifth, Sixth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments against psy- chiatric testimony in capital cases. Berger's brief made it seem plain that capital case defendants would not know of the hazards of talking to a doctor about future criminal propensities. For reasons that were in no way ob- vious, Berger had come to the oral argument determined to discredit the particular psychiatrist involved in the Smith case, Dr. James Grigson. He wanted to be sure that the Court knew the doctor was "prosecution oriented" -a point that his brief had made, but far more subtly. "Aren't all expert witnesses oriented to the side who calls th Relt u' i-n ' ~ r QQr~ M~o~igh't kbp complaint. Berger agreed, but insisted that it was "particularly relevant here" be- cause in Texas, "prosecution-oriented psychiatrists are going in to see these defendants. " He would not give up the point when ridiculed sharply by Justice Byron White for failing to prove his claim about Grigson's supposed bias. Justice Stevens offered Berger a chance to get off that line, asking, "It wouldn't make any difference, would it, to the legal. question, whether the psychiatrist was defense oriented?" Berger said that was correct, thus switching his ground to suggest that "this case is not about Dr. Grigson." Even after that exchange, however, Berger returned to his theme and aban- doned it only after the chief justice rath- er bluntly forced him off it. O 0 O ESCHEWING POLITICS: Benjamin Civilctti may be one of the most politi- cal of U.S. attorneys general, and he may have had one of the more interest- ing political assignments in a waning presidential campaign. But he handled it like a lawyer. Standing before the Court's lectern for the first time as attorney general (he was there once before as a private law- yer in 1973), Civiletti showed none of the political artlessness that last sum- mer took him to the White House to talk about not talking about Billy Carter's legal troubles. There were Jewish votes to win with the case of Fedorenko v. U.S. and Civi- lctti knew that-but he never let on. The case is about the right to contin- ued citizenship of Russian-born Feodor Fedorenko, who lied on his visa appli- cation in 1949 about his past as an armed guard at the Nazi death camp in Treblinka, Poland. The Justice Depart- ment's move against him is part of the continuing campaign to ferret out "Nazi collaborators," perhaps to de- port them. Fedorenko's case has brought major Jewish groups to the government's side in the Court, and its political impact is well known at the de- partment. Outside the Court, Civiletti insisted that politics had had nothing to do with having the case assigned to him for argument; there is always an election going on, he remarked drily to the gag- gle of press following him. Inside the chamber, he was as good as any of the subordinates the solicitor general sends up. He.argued the case with a bare lectern and did not drop a syllable ora crucial fact. The absence of props (he also had no apparent need for assistant Andrew Frey, who sat close enough to be of help) revealed a confi- dence that turned out to be justified. The attorney general is known as anything but a rash man, and he exhib- ited the utmost deliberation as he spoke. Civiletti, collected, composed and well-studied, was on top of his case, even though its legal points are complex and the attorney general had not had much time to learn them. The main points turn on the concepts of '`materiality" of information withheld by immigrants. The Court's past utter- ances about those concepts are far from helpful guides, but Civiletti gave them new clarity. Handsomely tanned below his deftly combed gray hair, the attor- ney general was as much the sartorial e Kgw ~s1t~ib flq~c superior of B OD. Fedorenko's lawyer, Brian Gildea of New Haven's Celentano and Gildea, is as dandy a looker as shows up at the bar. lie has it face fit for a shirt ad and exquisitely oiled hair. Gildea, too, came prepared-but his preparations were too visible, and he was too de- pendent on them. He departed from his notes only with difficulty and evident strain. For more than 20 of his allotted 30 minutes, Gildea was obsessed with the papers that lay before him. He was nearly finished before his side had achieved anything like oral clarity, and it did so then only because Justice William Brennan, Jr., gener- ously talked him through it in simple terms. He treated his case as if it were en- tirely fact bound, and thus left the legal questions at stake entirely open to Civi- letti's practiced exploration. O 0 0 TICKLED WHITE: Justice White sel- dom seems as tickled as when he has put a question that an attorney had never once pondered. He was positive- ly gleeful when Kevin Forde came up short on a jurisdictional idea floated by White in the hearing on U.S. v. Will. White may have had a special reason for the particular puzzler he asked of Forde. The Will case is a test of whether all federal judges (including all nine Supreme Court justices) have a consti- tutional right to a cost-of-living raise every year. The discomfort of facing that issue was everywhere evident on the bench and across the courtroom, and White's question involved a possi- ble way out. Forde, incidentally, did little to case the pangs. Repeatedly in the opening minutes of his argument on behalf of the 14 judges who sued for higher pay, the Chicago solo practitioner made an apology for the lawsuit. He called it an "explanation we owe the American people, if not this Court. " It was simply a matter of duty to bring such a case, he said at the start. "What canon of ethics," Justice Rehnquist asked archly, "requires federal judges to file a lawsuit urging other judges to raise their salaries?" Forde relied upon the mandate that it is a judge's responsibility "to preserve the independence of the judiciary," and the thought that Congress's refusal to assure an annual pay raise by law was a threat to that independence. Twice more, before turning to the merits, the Chicago lawyer asked for implied forgiveness for the lawsuit: "There is nowhere else to go. " White immediately wondered out loud if that were really so. "Could you have sued Mr. Foley in state court?" (William Foley, director of the Admin- istrative Office of U.S. Courts, pays judges their salaries.) Stumped at White's thought, which is nowhere touched in his brief or the Justice Department's brief on the other side, Forde nevertheless was quick to remember that the U.S. government could not be sued in state court. "I did not say the government. I said Mr. Foley," White responded. "Could he be sued in state court'? State courts handle federal question cases all the time. " Rehnquist chimed in: "Couldn't the Circuit Court of Cook County have heard this suit?" "No, no," replied Forde. With not a hint that he had ever looked up the question, he went on, "There is no state court in which we could have pro- Approved ) For Release 2001/07/27 : CIA-RDP91-00901R00010013000 29 December 1980 Old Spies and Cold Peas ByJEFF STEIN great power; it is evil unto itself. A corollary to this grand design is the pattern of omnipotent IiGB and Eastern Bloc efforts to recruit Western journal- I ists and plant false information in the press. The issue is important. In recent months, the devil theory of international relations has made a big comeback. The Soviet Union is said to be not merely throwing its weight around and protecting its vital interests, like any other year after five years of sour grapes. Membership has increased tenfold from an original 250 to 2600 former CIA, FBI, and military intelligence agents and officers, and this year, for the first time, corporate membership has been solicited and enthusiastically received (S500 a year gets a company three free memberships). Lockheed was first in line. A marked departure from earlier years, when the more prominent brethren were busy ducking subpoenas or television network crews, the mood at this year's convention was both joyous and combative, apparently thanks to the bracing Cold War tingle in the air and the solid prospects for new laws making it a crime to disclose the name of a CIA officer learned from publicly available sources. This year's convention of spies found cause for joy in every comer. Key "anti-CIA" liberals Frank Church, George McGovern, Birch Bayb, and John Culver were in deep trouble in their reelection bids (and went on to lose). The Supreme Court had grabbed Frank Snepp's "ill-gotten gains" from Decent Interval back for the government. The Congress had repealed the Clark Amend- ment prohibiting covert intervention in Africa on the side ofapartheid and had retreated from its early promise to write a strong CIA and FBI charter. As former CIA intelligence chief and present Reagan adviser Ray Cline crowed to the assembled CIA, FBI, and military men, "We are on the upgrade at last." Or are they' A few days of milling around at the conference, clipping into panel discussions and chatting with a number of intelligence officers in the lobby or bar, suggests that the U.S. intelligence community remains mired in delusions about itselfand the world about it. Its chronic and crippling problem remains its inability to distinguish between intervention and intelligence, security and repression. In the real world, moreover, its solution to these problems is not as harmless as hiring rabbits to pretest food for a convention banquet- A series of sharp exchanges at the conference is instructive. On Friday, October 3, a panel on Soviet Bloc intelligence operations unveiled its star performer, the former chief of "disinformation" for Czech intelligence, Ladis- lav Bittman. Chaired by Ray Cline, the panel sought to draw out of Bittman a Phillips (Cuba, 1960; Brazil, 1964; Chile, 1973), appears to be having a vintage as the Association of Former Intelligence Officers sat down fora luncheon at its fifth annual convention.

Central Intelligence Agency today asked Congress to pass a law providing `criminal punishment for unauthorized `disclosure of the identities of its agents. Hundreds of agents have been compro- mised by the publication of their names in books and magazines, the agency's deputy director, Frank C. Carlucci, said. "it: is imperative that the Congress clearly and firmly declare that the unau- thorized disclosure of the identities of our intelligence officers; and those -allied in our efforts will no longer be tolerated," he said. Mr. Carlucci told the Senate Intelli- gence Committee that the disclosure of identities. of undercover agents and the i C.I.A.'s foreign sources of information had had a harmful effect on the United States intelligence program. "Our relations with foreign sources of intelligence have been impaired," he said. "Sources have evinced increased concern for their own safety. Some active sources,. and individuals contemplating cooperation with the United States, have terminated or reduced their contact with us." Mr Carlucci, who advocated prison terms and fines for offenders, was speak- ing at the first of a series of public hear ings by the committee..

Carlucci also testified that the F.O.I.A. was no =longer needed as an oversight device because Congress now has its own oversight committees, and he affirmed that those com.- mittees were being supplied with "whatever information they need" to prevent abuses. The very next day, however, C.I.A. Director Stansfield Turner informed a Senate intelli- gence committee that sensitive information had-been and would continue to be withheld from the committees, despite his assurances to the contrary in his confirmation hearings.

'teliigence community has seized on a i chanced pational?" mood to press from the removal of restrictions on their agenci.es. I Moving on several fronts. under leadd ers of the Central. Intelligence Agency, administration officials are seeking to ease demands on discloou a of agency( files under the. Freedom of Information Act and to decrease requirements of informing Congress of covert schemes in advance. The restrictions were imposed in the 1970s after agency abuses of civil rights were brought to light. Perhaps most importantly, the agen- cies have won-support for the idea that new charters should be.written for the Federal,Bureau of Investigation and the] CIA in a fashion to increase their pow- ers in-some areas while restricting their, methods in others. . The' moves, are in 'sharp contrast tol the past when, for example, then-CIA Director William Colby sat meekly at a hearing table while former Rep. Bella Abzug [D., N,Y.1 ridiculed him for hav- ing her mail opened. . - INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS, obvi ously pleased, contrast Colby's humilia- tion to the forceful some have said arrpgant - presentations recently made by-.CIA Director Stansfield Turner on Capitol. Ilill, At a.'sesslpn of the Senate Intelligence Committee; Turner stunned Sen.? Steven- son [D., 111.1 by- disclosing that he has broken, a promise to advise the thtelli gence panel.. in advance of all covert CIA activities. Turner insisted that when he 'said un der oath in 1977 that he,would have 'no difficulty";'in reporting all covert plans to Stevenson, he only meant he would "try"' to pass on data. Besides, Turner told Stevenson's Senate Select Commit- tee on Intelligence, there is no law fore- ing-himto inform that committee:. ' Later,, Turner aides. disclosed one sto- ry that the' CIA had. withheld from the Senate - the agency's knowledge that the Canadian diplomatic mission to Teh- ran was hiding six American embassy \ workers.. r . . ,. i.. ,.4 . ,. WITHIN Till-.' so-called intelligence community, recent events in Iran and Afghanistan are credited with winning support, rather than condemnation, for the various spy agencies after nearly a decade of concern over civil liberties, domestic spying against U.S. citizens, and even efforts to kill U.S. dissenters. A newsletter circulated among the ia-1 telligence and defense communities re- cently summed up -the new climate by- saying: "Out of the gathering clouds of 1 the Iranian and Afghanistan crises there may. be a silver lining. Because of the lack of good in- formation about Iran [before the Shah's downfall and since] there is growing sentiment on Capitol Hill to revamp the laws' governing the intelligence agencies in such a way as to restore a clalulestine capability." The letter was endorsed by several hardliners, including Adm. William Moorer, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Many hardliners argue that clandestine operations are limited severely by the 1974 Hughes-Ryan' Amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act, which requires the House and Senate Foreign Affairs committees be informed of ' plans for covert operations. SPEAKING-ABOUT Hughes-Ryan and the Freedom of Information Act) at a, recent Ilou ye hearing,. Frank. Carlucci, deputy CIA_director, said that numerous foreign intelligence networks have re- fused:flatly to work with the,CIA or. other U.S. intelligence , operations be- cause they fear leaks on Capitol, Nil. Just as Turner had .surprised the Sen- I ate, committee with his strong position, Carlucci startled the House Government Operations Committee when he argued " that he personally believes the CIA can guarantee that no information will leak. But foreign spies -just don't believe that, Carlucci argued. "Foreigen agents - some vary. impor- t ont-hav either refused t o ' accept. or have terminated a relationship on- the grounds that, in ? t~ ?.ir minds---and it is unimportant whet; ,.: they are right or not-but in their minds the CIA is no longer able, to absolutely guarantee that the information which they provide the .

Following Carlucci and Turner, FBI Director William Webster and Bob In- man, director of the super-secret Na- tional Security Agency, along with rep- resentatives of the Defense Intelligence Agent' made congressional appearances to argue that their agencies need some of the same relief from past reforms.. . At the White- House, an official told reporters that President Carter endorses "relief across the board"' for intehi.. Bence officers who 'have complained about the Freedom of Information Act. That prompted Sen. Daniel P. .Moyni- han [D., N.Y.] to? wonder aloud. about the changes in national mood.
