Stran 343 - Nothing contained in this chapter or in section 605 of the Communications Act of 1934 (48 Stat. 1143; 47 USC 605) shall limit the constitutional power of the President to take such measures as he deems necessary to protect the Nation against actual or potential attack or other hostile acts of a foreign power, to obtain foreign intelligence information deemed essential to the security of the United States, or to protect national security information against foreign intelligence activities.
Stran 18 - It is clear that I don't have anybody in my office that I can trust except Colonel Haig" (quoted on page 28 of the Smith 6/25/73 summary).
Stran 352 - Because management of the bureaucracy takes so much energy and precisely because changing course is so difficult, many of the most important decisions are taken by extra-bureaucratic means. Some of the key decisions are kept to a very small circle while the bureaucracy happily continues working away in ignorance of the fact that decisions are being made, or of the fact that a decision is being made in a particular area.
Stran 352 - ... the fact that a decision is being made in a particular area. One reason for keeping the decisions to small groups is that when bureaucracies are so unwieldy and when their internal morale becomes a serious problem, an unpopular decision may be fought by brutal means, such as leaks to the press or to congressional committees.
Stran 351 - ... result * * *.

If one wishes to influence American foreign policy, the time to do so is in the formative period, and the level is the middle level of the bureaucracy — that...
Stran 13 - But beyond this, the issue of wiretapping raises the issue of the balance between human liberty and the requirements of national security. I would say that the weight should be on the side of human liberty and that if human liberty is to be ever infringed, the demonstration on the national security side must be overwhelming. That would be my general attitude.
Stran 87 - Mr. Hoover had used wiretap information to blackmail other Presidents of the United States and was afraid that he could blackmail Mr. Nixon with this information. Mr. Sullivan reiterated his request of Mr. Mardian to personally contact the President of the United States and pass along Mr.
Stran 351 - This was given at the University of California, by Dr. Kissinger in 1968. It says: Also, research and intelligence organizations, either foreign or national, attempt to give a rationality and consistency to foreign policy which it simply does not have. I have found it next to impossible to convince Frenchmen that there is no such thing as an American foreign policy, and that a series of moves that have produced a certain result may not have been planned to produce that result * * *. Once the American...
Stran 352 - Our governmental process works reasonably well in relation to specific technical issues and also when there is an adversary procedure. If one department is strongly for something and another department opposed, then the President or cabinet officer has a chance of elaborating an overall purpose. The system goes awry if you have a small, dedicated, unopposed group. Because of this gap between expertise and decision-making, a great deal of communication occurs by means of a briefing.
Stran x - The committee reaffirms its position of last year that his role in the wiretapping "* * * did not constitute grounds to bar his confirmation as Secretary of State.
