Saturday, October 19, 1991 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER NationA-3 Gates: New leader for a new CIA Senate panel votes to confirm Gates FALL SVJEEPS "V( Full leaf removal service brought to you by Louiso Lawn Care & Snow Removal Inc. Curb side and driveway pickup Call for details & scheduling Before 5: 271-5665 r After 5: 248-2919 V, "intelligence community" is hard to overstate. If confirmed by the Senate, Gates becomes not merely the head of the CIA but the titular director of 11 other U.S. intelligence agencies, some bigger and bureaucratically more complex than the CIA itself. Together, the spy services employ perhaps a quarter of a million people and spend roughly $30 billion a year. In coming years, billions will be cut from the secret "black budget" that funds U.S. intelligence; thousands, maybe tens of thousands of people are going to lose their jobs. Gates will have to go to war over money and manpower with the generals and admirals who run the National Security Agency, which taps the world's telecommunications, and the National Reconnaissance Office, which builds and operates billion-dollar spy satellites. Both have larger budgets than the CIA, and the military men who run them are not known for saluting civilians. Gates will also have to remake the CIA, where he worked for 20 years, where he is not universally loved and where his return will not be met by unalloyed rejoicing. How to teach your child for Gates only with "serious reservations," and that he still might oppose the nominee on the floor if the CIA does not respond to questions for which it has so far not giv ine, KNIGHT NEWS SERVICE WASHINGTON Robert Gates is no radical. But the man expected to become the next director of central intelligence must lead the United States' spy services through revolutionary changes in the 1990s. The Senate Intelligence Committee concluded in an 11-4 vote Friday that Gates was the right man for the job. He "will be called upon to make the most sweeping changes in the intelligence community since the CIA was created almost half a century ago," said committee chairman David Boren, D-Okla. The senators carefully considered the man. But consider the job: As the Cold War winds down, "the Central Intelligence Agency is going to go through a tumultuous time over the next five years," Sen. Warren Rudman, R-N.H., said Friday. Gates "will be faced with the bureaucratic nightmare of not only the CIA's reduction, but the entire intelligence community's." The size of the nightmare and of the loosely confederated Gates ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES WASHINGTON - The Senate Intelligence Committee, its Democrats sharply divided over testimony about intelligence slanting, low morale and political turmoil inside the CIA, voted 11-4 Friday to recommend the confirmation of Robert Gates as director of central intelligence. Supporters of Gates predicted that the comfortable margin of victory would translate into a swift confirmation when his nomination goes to the Senate floor later this month. Gates' backers based much of their optimism on the decision by Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga., who is regarded as the most influential member of the intelligence panel, to join Chairman David Boren, D-Okla., and two other previously undecided Democrats in siding with the seven Republicans who voted for confirmation. Nunn, however, said he voted patience, sensitivity, poise, creativity, coordination, and concentration in simple black and white. en "satisfactory answers." Sen. Howard Metzenbaum, D-Ohio, voted against Gates. Sen. John Glenn, D-Ohio, voted to approve his nomination. The committee heard conflicting testimony about Gates' knowledge of the Iran-Contra scandal. But it found no "smoking gun" to disqualify the nominee, no undisputed evidence to support allegations that Gates "systematically attempted to politicize or slant" intelligence, Boren said. pmsmipmmimmmwim JJTipWir.j ' . -iT H .7.J:Llilill ififf.ri:iiir.i.!ii . . .provide traditional home-cooked Thanksgiving dinners with all the trimmings for the hungry and shelter for the homeless during this Thanksgiving season.
