The Church Committee Reports (Complete)

These 14 Published reports of the Church Committee contain a wealth of information on the formation, operation, and abuses of the U.S. intelligence angencies. They were published in 1975 and 1976, after which recommendations for reform were debated in the Congress and in some cases carried out. The Interim Report documents the Church Committee's findings on U.S. involvement in attempts to assassinate foreign leaders, particularly Patrice Lumumba of the Congo, Cuba's Fidel Castro, Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic, the Diem brothers of Vietnam, and General Rene Schneider of Chile. It also contains findings on the development of a general Executive Action capability by the CIA. The remaining reports are split into 7 volumes of public hearings and exhibits and 6 books which contain the Committee's writings on the various topics investigated. These 14 reports are the most extensive review of intelligence activities ever made public. (Compiled from partial downloads found at: http://www.aarclibrary.org/)
