Reprinted in a Special Supplement to The Village Voice under the title, “The Pike Papers: House Select Committee on Intelligence CIA Report.” (October 1976)
The Village Voice, a weekly New York newspaper, published excerpts of the secret final report of the investigations into the U.S. intelligence community of the House of Representatives Select Committee on intelligence (Rep. Otis G. Pike of New York chairman). The 338-page secret report was provided to The Village Voice editor by Daniel Schorr, veteran CBS correspondent, who repeatedly refused to name his source of the report—even under Congressional pressure. The excerpts printed by The Village Voice detail performance of the intelligence community during crisis periods such as the Tet Offensive of the Vietnam War, the Mid-East wars, the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviets, and Indian-Pakistan War. Also reprinted are accounts of the financial activities of the community and the covert action activities of the CIA.
