The article comments on provisions of the proposed National Intelligence Reorganization and Reform Act that would require judicial warrants for surveillance of foreign intelligence agents in the United States. It is pointed out that the bill's restrictive bureaucratic controls on the U.S. undercover intelligence abroad have to be examined in view of the alleged inadequate circumstantial evidence of the Central Intelligence Agency on the role of Cuba in the Katangan invasion.
