Probes revive skepticism, confusion Spy agency a mystery WASHINGTON (CP) sudden rash of investigations being organized into the activities of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has revived the widespread feelings of confusion and skepticism which have been constant companions of the United States spy agency for much of its 27-year history. Four separate committees of the United States Congress have announced they will look into allegations that the CIA illegally spied on American citizens in their home country. And President Ford has named a "blue- ribbon" commission headed by Vice- president Nelson Rockefeller to conduct a 90-day study of CIA activities within the United States. With four congressional committees at work, the likelihood of conflicting pur- poses and inefficiency seerns obvious. A more fundamental question has been posed by reporter Seymour Hersh, whose recent series of articles in the New York Times first raised the allegations of illicit CIA spying on anti-war activists and others in the U.S. Why, Hersh asks in a news analysis, did it take a newspaper story to promote the current investigations "when the facts were long since known to government of- ficials and some in Congress." Representative Lucien Nedzi (Dem. who as chairman of the House of Representatives intelligence subcom- mittee will lead the main congressional study of the CIA, has acknowledged being told more than a year ago about illegal ac- tivities but says he did nothing because such actions had already stopped. "It was he says. Other congressional leaders, charged with exercising some oversight of the CIA, have apparently turned a similarly tol- erant eye in the past on excesses and blunders committed by CIA agents and of- ficials. The standard reason has been "na- tional security." Meanwhile, the membership of Presi- dent Ford's newly created commission has raised eyebrows all over Washington. Senator William Proxmire (Dem. Wise.) calls the commission "very considering its main job will centre around alleged abuses of civil liberties by CIA counter intelligence. Rockefeller himself has been a member for five years of the foreign intelligence advisory board, a civilian group respon- sible for overseeing U.S. intelligence ac- tivities. As such, critics say, he lacks the appearance of impartiality which would inspire public confidence in the new com- mission. Several other members of the new eight- man commission have also had more- than-casual connections with U.S. in- telligence operations in the past and some have earned scant respect for their at- titudes toward citizens' rights. When the CIA was created in i947 as a successor to war-time U.S spy operations, public debate focussed on whether the United States should coun- tenance the same double standard as its major allies and it is all right to conduct activities abroad against foreign citizens and governments of a kind which would not be tolerated at home. The CIA charter locked in the double standard. It specificially forbade the agency to engage in domestic spying of the type it was being funded to carry on abroad. From humble beginnings, the CIA is reputed to have become a year octopus, part of a tangled complex of military and civilian intelligence agencies and departments which published reports of up to billion annually.
