S. Rept. 98-665: Report of the Select Committee on Intelligence, United States Senate, January 1, 1983 to December 31, 1984, October 10, 1984   [open pdf - 5MB]

"The 98th Congress has been an unusually busy one for the Select Committee in Intelligence. During this period, the Committee held 127 meetings, hearings and briefings on record, which compares favorably with the 133 in the 97th Congress and 99 in the 96th. As well, it reported 12 bills or resolutions, and the Committee issued 10 reports. Not only has the Committee maintained a high level of the oversight activities with which it has been charged, but also it has weathered the stresses and strains which have come in the course of fulfilling its oversight responsibilities, particularly with regard to the conduct of covert action activities. [...] In summary, the period of the 98th Congress has been an eventful one for the Select Committee on Intelligence and for Congressional oversight of the American Intelligence Community. It is hoped that the following report of the Committee's activities will also show that this period was a productive one for this important Congressional activity." Sections in this report include the following: In the Central American section--Collection and Analysis, Covert Action, History of Nicaraguan Program, Other Oversight Activities Concerning the Nicaraguan Program, Covert Action Reporting Procedures, and Political Violence in El Salvador; in the Legislation: Freedom of Information Act section--Counterintelligence and Official Representation, Polygraphs, National Historical Intelligence Museum, and Legislation Regarding DCI [Director Central Intelligence] and DDCI [Deputy Director Central Intelligence] Positions; and in the Intelligence and Security Activities Sections--Analysis and Production, Counterintelligence, General Collection, Human Intelligence Collection, and Communications Security Program. Other sections in the report include: General Oversight, Budget Authorization, and Administrative Issues, along with an Appendix at the end of the report.
