Yesterday's hearing brought evi- dence of a number of such warnings. Afterwards the Siflte department volunteered that It had boon fully nware of the situation itself and that Marshall had commented the American republics were not going to be intimidated by communists or anybody else. Rear Admiral R. H. Hillcnkoet- tcr, head of Uie CIA, told Brown's committee that "conditions in Col- ombia, arc similar to those in the United States except that they are advanced a couple of years."
