Approved For Releas r3P S?GR? ~gt-2 )791 R000100040001-3"i" STARGATE Of the funds a%ailahic to the Derenw intelligence Agency, the Committee directs that $500,000 be applied to the STARGATE program and that the tuner: 10 billets remain assigned to the program. The Committee requests that funds be a; lied roughly equally to foreign ass.essrr,ent. rese. j h and operational viewing. The Commi:lee is concerned that Congressional direction in the past regarding the solicitation of users across the 1`71P and DoD and development of joint programs with the Russians and Chinese has only been sporadically pursued. The Committee remains perplexed b the obi ions reluctance of support on the part. of the DIA leadershi (or this . ro ram It believes, for example. that liaison a.::vibes by program personnc v e : t ilar programs in other nations sh.ould be pursued and does not accept the excuse that this somehow compromises US intelligence activities. The Committee W'sa believes that the time has come for a r4?e~'a;ua::~~~ of the classification of the existence of t is effort as well as he results that have been obt:ir.ed over time.
