Nicholson's activities caught on FBI videotape

investigators formally opened a probe
.of his activities early this year. The
failure of the post-Ames reforms to
deter Nicholson may mean there are
still spies to be caught, former opera-
tives say.
The Nicholson case is the first
major, publicly known case that tests
the effectiveness of the post-Ames
After learning that Ames had sold
-bags full of secret documents to

Moscow for nine years and gone
undetected despite brash activities
like driving a Jaguar, the CIA and the
FBI forged a new partnership
designed to monitor intelligence offi-
cials more closely.
After noting the importance of
maintaining vigilance, CIA Director
John Deutch said at a news conference
yesterday, "this arrests demonstrates
that the counterintelligence reforms
that have been put into place in the
wake of Aldrich Ames have taken hold
and have led to our success in catching
the spy Nicholson."

However, in light of the apparent
absence of any deterrent effect on
Nicholson from the Ames reforms, a
former clandestine officer said the
CIA would have to wait to find out
whether it still had a broad problem.
It would only know for sure if "two
years from now, there is this case and
others made public" of spies inside
the agency.
A former case officer said the
Nicholson case "may signal there are
more people like this than we believed,"
but added, "the new procedures are
going to catch them."

Former CIA Director William
Webster said yesterday he did not sub-
scribe to the idea that Nicholson's
alleged spying coming shortly after
Ames raises broad questions about
agency security. "The potential is always
there but that doesn't mean there should
be any blanket condemnation. Like any
other organization, the CIA is going to
have personnel with vulnerabilities."
Those vulnerabilities appear to be
particularly serious with individuals
like Nicholson, who displayed a seem-
ingly reckless attitude towards the pos-
sibility of getting caught.

Board starts hearing on Valuejet crash
MIAMI - Almost two minutes befdre ValuJet Flight 592 plunged into the
Everglades, its passengers and crew knew they were in serious trouble, and one
man even used his cellular phone to make one last call to his wife, according to
documents released yesterday.
A fire and thick smoke spread so explosively through the McDonnell Douglas
DC-9 that only about 50 seconds elapsed between the first shouts heard from
passenger cabin and a silence as passengers were apparently overcome and the
shouts faded away.
"Completely on fire," a voice said less than a moment before impact. The cap-
tain, Candalyn Kubeck, and the first officer, Richard Hazen, fought for an unde-
termined time to save the twin-jet. But they either lost consciousness or the fire
burned through control cables - perhaps both. The plane entered a final death spi-
ral and crashed nose-down into the muck and sawgrass of the swamp.
The National Transportation Safety Board released the documents in starting a
week of hearings on the May 11 crash, which killed 110 people shortly after the
Atlanta-bound jet took off from Miami. Officials of ValuJet, the Federal Aviation
Administration and the Miami repair facility SabreTech Corp. are to be gri
about who should have prevented the boarding of hazardous oxygen generators
why the plane was not required to have fire detection equipment.

Prospect of U.S.
troops being sent to
Zaire diminishes
WASHINGTON - The prospect
that U.S. ground troops will be sent to
Zaire diminished sharply yesterday as
senior Clinton administration officials
concluded tentatively that the interna-
tional security force proposed by
Canada and approved by President
Clinton last week is no longer needed.
Plans have changed in light of the
massive return of refugees over the
weekend from eastern Zaire to Rwanda,
where there's currently no tribal fighting
and the government says there's no need
for foreign troops to provide protection.
Instead of 1,000 U.S. ground forces
backed by 3,000 to 4,000 support
troops,.as previously foreseen, smaller
groups of American supply personnel
and cargo delivery teams would be sent
to help civilian relief agencies distrib-
ute aid to the refugees back in Rwanda,
senior officials said.

lead a multinational rescue force of

Court: Traffic st&O
can be used to fi
evidence of drugs
WASHINGTON - The Supreme
Court ruled yesterday that when police
stop motorists for speeding violations
they need not tell them they are free to
go before questioning them on other
matters or searching their car for drugs.
The justices were unanimous in their
decision that nothing in e
Constitution protects individza
against what has become a common
law enforcement practice: the use of
routine traffic stops as a tool for ferret-
ing out illegal drugs.
Writing for the court, Chief Justice
William Rehnquist said it would be
"unrealistic" for police to be forced to
warn motorists that they are free to go
before asking them to agree to a search
for drugs or other contraband. q

NATO supports
force to supervise
Bosnian truce
BRUSSELS - The NATO allies
gave unanimous consent yesterday to
the reduced multinational force that
will supervise Bosnia's fragile truce
when the mandate for the current
peacekeeping mission ends next month.
Ambassadors from the 16 member
countries issued orders to senior military
commanders to draw up detailed contin-
gency plans for the 30-member stabi-
lization force, or SFOR, that is expected
to succeed an international contingent
now twice its size that has worked over
the past year to ensure compliance with
the Dayton peace accords.
The new NATO-led force is expected
to take up operations once the mandate
of its predecessor expires Dec. 20. The
alliance foreign and defense ministers
have scheduled meetings ahead of that
date to approve its final operating plan,
and the United Nations Security
Council will vote on a new resolution

endorsing its deployment in coming
U.S. won't endorse
new term for
States yesterday voted against a nbw
five-year term for Secretary General
Boutros Boutros-Ghali in an infefmal
straw poll of the 15-member Seeirity
Council, and reiterated that it w
veto his re-election when the cou il
takes its first formal vote today.
Washington's actions indicated that
there will be a deadlock within the
Security Council over the need 'to
agree on a new secretary gede-al
before Jan. 1.
The Clinton administration announced
last spring that it would oppose Boutos-
Ghali because it believes him too resis-
tant to reforming the world body.
