Bobby Inman, the retiring deputy dire6tor of thecii4,vo lliwas a well-deserved reputation on Ca Hill as a shrewd intelligence analyst and a man not given to alarmist rhetoric. Accordingly, we can hope that Adm. Inman's grim warning the other day about the threat posed by the Soviet Union's relentless military build-up will be heeded, most especially by those in Con- gress who imagine that tens of billions of dollars can be slashed from the defense budget without further eroding the nation's security. Adm. Inman was plain spoken: "I believe the Soviet build-up over the last 17 years? has brought us, to a perilous state." Perilous is an unambiguous word. Its use by the nation's second-ranking intelli- gence official means that, in his carefully measured judgment, the United States is in danger. ? Those in Congress who tend to dep- xsorwthat danger and to seek excuses for _ cutting deeply into the Reagan admin- istration's rearmament program cannot easily dismiss Bobby Inman's expertise, or his access to the most highly classified and sensitive intelligence. Nor can they make light of his observa- tion that" future Soviet leaders may be "less cautious" than the septuagenarians who now hold power in Moscow. Given the Soviet Union's recent adventures in places like Afghanistan, Angola, Ethiopia and Southeast Asia, any informed judgment that the next generation of leaders may be bolder is chilling stuff. The combination of Soviet military power that can even now reach anywhere in the world plus a more aggressive post- Brezhnev leadership would present the United States with unprecedented threats to its security and vital interests. The logical inference from Adm. Inman's wise counsel is that the best way to buy trouble tomorrow is to cut the defense budget _ today _ _ Approved For Release 2001/03/07 : CIA-RDP91-00901R000500250008-1 STATI NTL AltoptoyedifteduRdileale260111Tht/br: CkgRD P91-00901R000500250008-1 ON PAGE_Al__ 20 May 1982 dmiralinman to Inspect Sea Cade By Henry E.

CITY Washington, D.C. SUBJECT Inman Comments on the Falkland Crisis BOB EDWARDS: Yesterday the Deputy Director of the CIA, Admiral Bobby Inman, told a Senate subcommittee that Argentina may turn to the Soviet Union for weapons as a result of the Falklands conflict. Argentina's previous suppliers, the United States, Europe and Israel, have refused to sign new contracts since the invasion of the Falklands. And Inman said, "I think you will find the Soviets anxious to sell at a bargain price." With news that Soviet reconnaissance planes have spotted part of the task force, we have a report on Argentine-Soviet relations from Chris Hedges in Buenos Aires. CHRIS HEDGES: Since the invasion, one of the strongest defenders of the move to retake the Falklands outside of this country has been the Soviet Union. The Soviet news agency Tass has issued a stream of reports that brands the British as colonial aggressors; and during Secretary of State Alexander Haig's negotiations portrayed the American diplomat as manipulating the situation in favor of Britain. It is suspected by many observers here that the Argentines are receiving practical help from the Soviets during the crisis and can turn to the Soviets if they need to buy arms. While this regime claims to be anti-communist and killed 20,000 of its own people in an avowed war on Marxism, Argentina sells most of its grain to the Soviets. And when this crisis began, there were 20 Soviet ships in the port loading grain and another 20 off the coast waiting to receive shipment. OFFICES IN: WASHINGTON D.C. ? NEW YORK ? LOS ANGELES ?

The Argentirs have used their relationship to the Soviets as a threat, always painting the picture of an abandoned Argentina forced hy their cruel friend, the United States, into the arms of the Russims. Many government officials here are quite Fond of quoting Winston Churchill's line about making alliances with the devil if need he to save their country. Inc ties with the Soviets have been growing and will continue to grow afte,- this crisis. During a recent soccer match between the Soviets and Argentina, the Russian team was given an enthuisastic standing ovation. Anti-communim in Latin America is always a rhetorical convenience used to justify the silencing of any opposition, rather than an ideoloflical stance. And the Argentines are one of the prime examples.

Admiral Bobby Inman's comments came before a hearing on the flow of advanced military technology to the Soviet Union. Inman said future Soviet leaders may be less cautious than current officials in challenging the U.S. He warned that such a lack of caution could lead the Soviets to underestimate the strength of the U.S., causing a crisis in the years ahead.

While the sun peeked over the trees and security. men watched net VOUsly, they manned their computer consoles and braced for action. On the Blue Team, representing the United States, were arra; cd some of -the best brains in the strategic business. There were generals and admirals, CIA men and a Secretary of Defense, ascii- table Who's Who of the military estab- lishment. Their Red Team opponents, representing the nuclear might of the Soviet Union, were a less prepossessing lot. Especially their leader. He was a tall, slender man, almost gawky. Ile wore horn-rinuned glasses and had a large, high forehead of the kind that freckles in summer. He did not appear dangerous. Indeed, were it not for the admiral's uniform he was wearing?an ill-fitting garb from which it seemed the hanger had not been re- moved--he might have been taken for a schoolteacher (which, in fact, he had been before he joined the Navy). Com- pared with the company around him, glittery in its gold braid and determi- nation, he was an improbable figure, and his smile, which flashed frequently, was most imp ?balite of all. It was big and toothy and there was a gap between the leading incisors. Altogether, it made him look not so much like a schoolteacher and even less than an admiral; stand- ing there, amidst all that brass, he seemed like nothing so much as Huckleberry Finn. Ills muse w;is Bobby Ray Inman. The game commenced. Back and forth the simulated superpowers battled, sending their computerized scenarios this way and that. Missiles flew, bombers bombed, ships sailed, armies marched, whole countries disappeared. The ten- sion in the .room was electric. Hunched Li over one console, a member of the Joint Chiefs turned suddenly ashen. Out of nowhere, the nukes were on their way. On it went, hour after harrowing hour, and when it was over, when the world lay in pseudo cinders, there was egg of the most highly classified nature on the face of the United States. Said one awed participant, a former Secre- tary of Defense, of the man who had put it there, the admiral with the Huck Finn grin: "I'm just glad that guy's on our side." You hear that a lot, in Washington about Bobby Inman. "The right mats in the right job at the right time," Barry Goldwater, the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, calls him. James Schlesinger, the former Sec- retary of Defense, terms him "a national asset." To Senator Joe Biden, the liberal Democrat from Delaware, he is "the most quality guy in the Federal Govern- ment." Former CIA director Richard Helms commends him for his "bril- liance"; a Helms successor, William Colby, for his "integrity." Major General George J. Keegan, Jr., the fire-breathing former chief of Air Force Intelligence, likes him for his "guts"; BirchBayls, for Isis "brains"; Walter Mondale, for Isis "wisdom." And then there are those, like a former deputy director of the National Security Council, who say, quite simply, "Bobby Inman is the smartest man in uniform." And who, after a thoughtful pause, add, "laybe out of uniform, too." All this about an improbable man few people outside Washington have ever heard of. In Inman's profession, the ano- nymity is welcome. Bobby Ray Inman, you see, is a spy. ? His official title is deputy director, Central Intelligence. What he does is everything. It is Inman who runs the agency's day-to-day operations; Inman who coordinates the activities of the "in- telligence community"; Inman who pre- pares the critical "national intelligence estimates"; Inman who evaluates the data flowing in from spy satellites; In- man who protects CIA from flak on Capitol Hill; Inman who has the next-to- last word on every GIA undertaking, Approved For Release 2001/03/07 : CIA-RDP91-0090410=0008-1 t P1,-Apprbvdd Istir Retkisq1001 /03f07e:?011ft=1REIP91160901iM0051)02500aijilm" made of a Ilkolgy a a %kei e: nniter shippIng titter strugg over C 's new execti- his ce ings deviously plain.

It consists of exactly one un- revealing paragraph. It states that he was born, 50 -years ago, in Rhonesboro, Texas?a town that, according to South- western Bell, does not exist. The biography also says he attended the University of Texas, graduating in 1950 with a liberal-arts degree. A check with the university's alumni computer reveals no such person. Nor, unsurprisingly, is there any listing in any Washington, D.C., area telephone book for a Bobby Ray, or B., or B. R., or, for that matter. any Inman.

The principal exception is when he is called to Capitol Hill to testily before one or another of the intelligence-oversight committees, .whose hearings arc con- ducted in secret. Around Washington, he has few close associates CIE someone as lowly as a three-star admiral wants to see him," says one, himself a loin-star, "it had better be damned important") and even fewer friends, "Bobby," as one spook puts it, "is not the kind. of guy you talk over your bowling scores with." Of the handful ol people who claim to know him well, most could not say whether he smykes, or drinks (negative, in both instances), even whether he is married (he is, happily) or has children (he has, two: .both boys). indeed, out of 50 interviews with people who has worked with him over the years, rang- ing from former CIA directors to his superiors in the Navy, only one knew the name of his wile. It is Nancy, and, like her -husband, she is said to be very quiet- It has been anything but quiet., how- ever, since Inman came to CIA. There have been behind-the-secnes battles, exposi's in the press, questions about the agency's links to Libyan-backed assassins, continued conflicts with Congress and calls for director William Casey'sresigna- iion. One way or another, they haye all involved Bobby Ray Inman. A prime? ti?e order, an engagement that, before it was through, would shake the agency, threaten the Bill of Rights and nearly cost Inman his job. It Al began in early 1981, a few weeks a I tet Inman's eolith mat ion hearings. The hearings themselves had been a love leas:, With one Senator after another con- ml dating Inman on his extraordinary fitvess for his new job. The only note- wi.rthy moment came toward the end of the session, when,Inman was asked to Ionunent about reports dna CIA and the White House- would soon seek to undo restrictions the; Carter Administration had placed on the agency with regard to domestic 'spying. Inman's answer was direct; he was against the Administration move. As 'Inman put it: "I would not elect to carelessly walk away from the safeguards we have so carefully crafted together. These rules arc to protect U. S. cif iiens, tant anyone else, and I believe that we need to continue to protect them." But even as Inman WaS speaking, plans Were a root to undo those safeguards. They surfaced, finally, in March, with die leak of the draft of a proposed ex- ecutive order, which, once Ronald Reagan signed it, would allow -CIA not only to engage in domestic spying but to infiltrate domestic dissident organiza- tions, carry out dlandestine wire taps and conduct "Warrantless searches" ("black bag jobs," in agency parlanc.)? in sum, all the Operation Chaos ca- pers that had gotten CIA into trouble with Congress in the first place. Inman, who'd had a hand in drawing up the Carter protections before going to CIA, was livid. Almost immediately, he was back bei ((ICCongress, denouncing the new plan as a "third-level working staff paper" and pledging anew that?CIA's job is abroad." Lest anyone miss Isis point, lie then invited reporters to CIA's headquarters and, in a rare, on-the-rec- ord briefing, vowed. to resign if altera- tions were made to CIA's charter that he found "personally repugnant." The dralt was withdrawn and, shortly there- alter. its author, CIA general counsel Daniel Silver, kit the agency. But that wasn't the cud of it. Three months later, another proposal, this one in more protective of civil liberties, was floated and just as quickly shot down, apparently because it was too protective. 1 hen. last fall, a third and final draft made its appearance. Less Draconian than the first, more hard-line than the second, it still offered possi- bilities for domestic spying. Civil liber- tarians and not a few Senators were alarmed, and Inman shared their con- cern. At one point, during a secret Sen- ate briefing with CIA counsel Stanley to a Senator who was present, when Sporkin discussed provisions_ of lie, order . ? that would allow domestic sp ing, Iii- man flashed a "thumhs-down" sign; when the Sena tors bored in on Spork in, Imnan winked and beckoned with his hand, -More, more." "Bobby is the conscience of the agency," one Senator said al terward. "Without him, the deluge."

The joke in Washington is that its initials stand for Never Say Anything, and, in practice, NSA doesn't say much. It is listed in no Government handbook.

And then it would happen: A smile would conic over Inman's face as if, cartoonlike, a light bulb had been turned on in his head. "Well, yes, sir," he would begin, and two tight para- ,graphs later, the Senator would have what he had been after, with maybe a lesson in Russian history or English literature in the bargain. If the question had been less than wise, as questions in Congress tended to be, the Senator would never know it. This was not Scans Turner, who belittled them, or Dick Helms, who condescended to them; this was goodol' Bobby Inman, who simply informed them. It seemed so effortless, no one ever guessed at the pressure; only his left leg, crossed casually over the right, gave him away. When he was bored, it had a habit of swinging from side to side. The press was entranced. It was hard not to be when, as was his wont at NSA. he was lunching with them in their offices, taking them home to breakfast and, ever so nicely, asking them not to write this story or that. NSA directors had never done that 'before; no spook ever had. And they had suffered for it. Inman was different. When Inman talked, reporters listened. There lsre r c certain rules, of course; You never named him; you never attributed the tidbits he gave you; you never, in fact, did anything he didn't want you, to do.

The stories about the source of the leaks were untrue, but that did not prevent. further suspicions that In- man?"a sleeper agent." as one of his enemies called him?was behind Gold- water's call for Casey's resignation, when the CIA dfrector landed in a financial briar patch of his own. At one point, when it appeared that Casey was on the verge of being ousted, security advisor Allen let it be known that if Casey went. Inman would go with him. The Casey flap finally passed, but not before Inman was comiwlled to go on national television and, looking distinct- ly uncomfortable, commend his boss for doing "-a great job." But that was not a sufficient show of good faith for the po- litical right and, during the battle over CIA's proposed executive order, they went at Inman again. Human Events, the influential right-wing journal, warned ominously of unidentified "lib- erals" lurking within CIA's corridors, and The Wall Street Journal, in an edi- torial widely believed- to have been gen- erated by 'the White House, invited Inman to make good on his ? pledge about "personally repugnant'', executive orders and resign.
