(Studio) One CIA investigation called improper.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(State Department) CIA conducts lie detector tests on federal employees after FBI refusal. Egil Krogh, worker for John Erlichman, wanted State Department, Defense Department employees given tests with regard to security leaks. J. Edgar Hoover refused. CIA did job contrary to tradition, and with no objection from William Rogers, Melvin Laird. Embarrassing now; but not so then.
