A New and Better CIA

Evans, M. Stanton

National Review;7/6/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 27, p863
This article supports the bills introduced by Senator Lloyd Bentsen, House Representatives Robert Michel and Robert McClory that aims to reform the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and other intelligence agencies. The debacle in U.S. foreign relations in Iran has damaged the prestige of the U.S. intelligence services. Sustained criticism by the liberal media has severely affected the morale and ability of intelligence services. It is timely to reform the intelligence services so they can serve the country better.
