Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February 21, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-17 Sex traps used by CIA-Colby WASHINGTON (AP) William Colby, United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director, said Thursday the CIA once kept files on four congressmen and did not deny that the agency has used sex traps to gain information from foreigners. But Colby said these and other activities by the agency have been greatly ex- aggerated in a way that has "placed American intelligence in danger." "I won't say that sex and in- telligence never got Colby testified before an open meeting of the House of Representatives defence appropriations sub- committee. But he told the subcom- mittee in his first public testimony on alleged spying by the CIA in the U.S. that he preferred to withhold for a closed session any further comment on a published ac- count of sex traps. Columnist Jack Anderson has reported that the Drug Enforcement Administration had maintained apartments it allowed the CIA to use as sex lairs to obtain information from foreigners. Colby said the CIA has dis- covered several mistakes in his earlier, testimony before a closed meeting of the Senate appropriations committee. He said the CIA conducted telephone wiretaps against 27 persons between 1947 and 1965, not 21 as he told the Senate committee; that four of the persons whose phones were tapped were non-CIA employees, not two as he had said earlier; that the agency had files on four congressmen, not one as he had told the Senate com- mittee; and that the agency had conducted four break-ins in the U.S., not three as he testified earlier. Asked if any of the congressmen were active in the anti-war movement, Colby said, "I believe a couple of them were." "Several congressmen did go to meetings abroad and in reports of those meetings the members' names would ap- he testified. But he said none of the congressmen was ever under CIA sur- veillance. Colby's attack on what he called "the sensational allega- tions of CIA misdeeds" was prepared for his first public congressional questioning on the issue, before the defence appropriations subcommittee of the House of Represen- tatives. Without naming the allega- tions, Colby accused former While House aide Charles Col- son of "lack of credibility" and New York Times reporter Seymour Hersh of ex- aggeration. Referring specifically to a charge that the CIA knew in advance about the Watergate break-in, which Colson made during a television interview, Colby said: "His lack of credi- bility should cause the charge to fall of its own weight." While confirming Hersh's original story that 22 CIA agents infiltrated anti-war dissident groups and collected files on Americans, Colby denied this was a "massive illegal domestic intelligence operation."
