In the past the CIA reverj had commented publicly. At most it would give an occa sional off-record briefing to' newsmen. Hence the information could never be credited to the source.

Newsmen were Invited to CIA headquarters, given the briefing on the So- \iet economy, and told that they could credit the CIA as the source. The reaction to the new policy waj nearly all bad. The CIA waj criticized by ether government agencies, which like their intelligence agents to stay in the shadows; by some congressmen who objected to what hey believed was a lack of control over the CIA. and, as expected, by Russia, which termed the CIA report "pre- posterous.TM Some o%servers said the purpose of the surprise report was twofold: \ --By showing up the Soviet ' Union as a credit risk, the CIA could forestall Western European governments from providing the Kremlin with billions of dollars worth of trade credits to prop up its economy. --It would allow the CIA to publicize some of iti work in a way that wouM help improve its -image"* with the public.
