CIA probe cites Nixon, Johnson

WASHINGTON T/P -Presi-
dents Johnson and Nixon pres-
sured the CIA into mounting a
domestic spy operation which
director Richard Helms knew
violated the agency's charter,
according to a Senate intel-
ligence committee stff report.
Operation Chaos, designed to
uncover the foreign influence
behind domestic unrest, lasted
from 1967 to 1974 despite re-
peated findings that student
and racial demonstrations at
home were not directed or fi-
nanced from abroad, the report
added.
The staff report called Chaos'
gathering of information on do-

mestic political activity "a
step toward the dangers of a
domestic secret police."
At its peak. Operation Chaos
carried the names of 300,000
Americans in a computerized
index code-named Hydra and
maintained separte files on an
estimated 7,500 citizens, accord-
ing to the report released yes-
terday.
Information in the files in-
cluded intelligence on domes-
tic political activity gathered
from electronic eavesdropping,
mail opening, undercover ag-
ents and FBI reports, the staff
study said.
As an example of the scope
of Chaos, the report cited the
CIA's request to the National
Security Agency NSP for ma-
terial picked up from interna-
tional phone calls and tele-
grams "regardless of how in-
nocuous the information may
appear."

"Operation Chaos was not an
intelligence mission sought by
the CIA," the report stressed.
Presidents Johnson and Nixon
pressed then-director Helms to
determine the extent of hostile
foreign influence on domestic
unrest, and the agency's re-
peated negative findings only
led to pressure for a more
thorough investigation, accord-
ing to the report.
In February, 1969, Helms sent
a written warning "to Henry
Kissinger for President Nixon"
that "this is an area not within
the charter of this agency, so
I need not emphasize how ex-
tremely sensitive this makes
the report on student unrest.
Should anyone-learn of its ex-
istence, it wauld prove most
embarrassing for all concern-
ed."'
The CIA charter bars it from
internal security functions.
The 52-page report, which re-

vealed few new details about the Washington Peace Center,
Chaos, also provided extensive the Congress of Racial Equality
descriptions of three related and the Student Nonviolent Co.
projects - Merrimack, Resist- ordinating Committee. In some
ance and Project 2. instances, persons were follow-
Under Merrimack, the CIA ed to their homes, the report
used construction workers and said.
tradesmen in Washington as Project 2 began in 1970 as a
part-time agents to collect "any separte operation in which
information about the plans and agents entered American uni-
attitudes" of such groups as versities in preparation for
he Women's Strike for Peace, undercover assignments abroad.
