The Importance of Richard Helms

November 1977
National Review;11/25/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 46, p1348
This article focuses on a controversy related to the discharge of legal obligations by Richard Helms, the U.S. ambassador to Iran. Helms was not brought to account for any heinous crimes but was trapped as a result of his inability to avoid a conflict of obligations. Some persons have said that had Helms not wanted to be the ambassador to Iran he could have avoided questioning by the U.S. Senate. Helms withheld information demanded in discharge of one obligation so that he could satisfy another obligation. He has been held liable today for his actions which in another time would have been praised.
