  • Description

    In Washington on Monday (13 January), Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller pledged to get to the bottom of allegations that the Central Intelligence Agency illegally spied on American citizens.

    Mr. Rockefeller was speaking before the first closed-door session of his newly-formed commission, shortly after a swearing-in ceremony. He said they would conduct the inquiry with determination and thoroughness.

    The C.I.A.'s present Director, Mr. William Colby, was among the first witnesses called by the panel at its first session on Monday.

    President Fort set up the Commission following a New York Times report that the C.I.A. conducted widespread domestic spying during the 1960's, in violation of its charter limiting it to overseas activities.

    There are at least four different Congressional committees which have announced their intentions to investigate these allegations.
