Description

Stansfield Turner, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, defends the intelligence community from a barrage of criticism over recently-uncovered abuses. While acknowledging the necessity for appropriate constraints, he argues that the unprecedented degree of accountability required from the Agency must not take the form of a straightjacket that prevents the gathering of vital information. Douglas Inquiry VII. Dec. 7, 1978.
