On the program In The Present Tense, Miles Copeland, a former agent for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) said: "My experience is ... that everything that any government says is at least partly a lie. "An intelligence analyst looking at the statement of President Nasser, President Nixon, Golda Meir, anyone else, must ask himself not what is the content of what he or she is saying but what is the purpose of the statement." Kermit Roosevelt, a personal envoy of the late John Foster Dulles, U.S. secretary of state, and a former CIA agent in the Middle East during the 1950s, said former U.S. president Eisenhower refused to lie aboiit the U-2 incident in Russia when he should have lied. He said that "a story had been agreed upon up to the highest level." that a plane piloted by Gary Powers, shot down within the Soviet Union while on a spy mission, was going to be described as a weather plane that got off its route. He said that, instead. President Eisenhower "was over- come by a sudden rash of truthfulness ... and announced that he knew all about it (the spying) and had approved it." Mr. Roosevelt said the Russians couldn't accept the truth. "(Nikita) Khrushchev could not go and meet Eisenhower ... when Eisenhower just pub- Turkish solution ANKARA (Reuter) -Turkey appears close to a solution in its three-month-old political crisis with the prospect of an Islamic party shanng power for the first time since the country became a secular republic 50 years ago. News of a coalition pact be-tween the Republican People's Party (RPP) and the National Salvation Party (NSP), an Islamic group, was taken to President Fahrl Koruturk today by the speakers of the national assembly and senate. Although military commanders do not favor the coalition, the president faces, no constitutional alternative but to nominate RPP leader Bulent Ecevit as premier-designate.

Tracker takes fresh step to find Sasquatch WASHINGTON (AP) -Bigfoot has been around a lot longer than flying saucers, but the evidence is similarly inconclusive as to whether the creature leaving those huge footprints in Canada and the U.S. northwest is real. Known there by the Indian name Sasquatch, he is a legendary, shy, hairy, manlike being who leaves footprints four to seven inches wide and from 12 to 17 inches long. Russ Kinne, writing in the current issue of Smithsonian magazine, traces the recorded history of Bigfoot back over 160 years, concluding there is no proof one way or another as to whether he is real. "Most scientifically trained >eople who think about it at all )elieve it is all nonsense but a few scientists bielieve in Sasquatch and so does Peter Byrne, an animal tracker of legendary skill, who is currently camped out in The Dalles, Ore., determined, once and for all, to prove Sas-quatch's existence or lack of it," Kinne writes. The evidence consists of thousands of footprints, many Kinne, a free-lance photographer and writer, says in the magazine article that the first white man's record of Sasquatch dates from 1811, when an exploring party found in Canada 14-inch footprints that seemed to be too large for i:Mf ^^EARS AGO In 1884, a train engineer saw a gorilla-type animal lying near the roadbed near Yale, B.C. Kinne says that when the train approached the creature climbed a hill with the train crew following and was captured and held for several days. The creature was described as more than four feet tall, covered with hair, and of extraordinary strength. The film, shot in 1967, has been shown to numerous scientific groups and carefully examined in detail, Kinne says. "The film shows an upright creature, small for a Sasquatch, about seven feet tall, which walks across the field of view, turns to look toward the camera, and continues on out of sight," the article says. A studio specializing in animation concluded that the subject was an animal, not a man in a fur suit. Kinne writes that the film was examined frame - by -frame by Dr. Donald Grieve, an anatomist specializing in the human gait at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine in London. lidy announced that he'd been a^iprovjing spying on the Soviet Hal Knight, a retired U.S. Air Force major who helped direct bombers into Cambodia from 1969 to 1970, said his job was to burn material designating the real targets in Cambodia and substitute material designating false ones in Vietnam. "For each mission we ran in Cambodia we had what we called a cover target in Vietnam ... that was supposed to have been bombed. So what we did was we submitted the report as if we hadbombed the target In Vietnam when actually we bombed the target in Cambodia.
