Ethics officer favors no curb on providing data

An ordained minister told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Tuesday that Congress should not bar the clergy, journalists, or missionaries from an opportunity to be patriotic by providing information to the CIA. "All American citizens should be free to cooperate with the CIA, FBI, HEW, or any other US agency in the pursuit of legitimate national interests," said Dr. Ernest W. Lefever, president of the Washington-based Ethics and Public Policy Center. He said there was "no good reason why an American journalist, missionary, or anthropologist should not report" famine, genocide, or lesser threats to internal stability in foreign countries to the host government and US officials.
