Report on CIA activity in Angola that urges people to support the motion by Representative Robert Giaimo that prohibits covert aid to Angola and the amendment by Representative Michael Harrington to defeat indirect aid to Angola through Zaire via the U.S. Military Assistance Program. It also urges opposition to all CIA "covert operations" and appointment of a special prosecutor to begin criminal proceedings against CIA officials for past and present illegal CIA activities. The document reports that Secretary of State Kissinger's powerful "40 Committee" ordered the CIA to intervene in the Angola war through the covert supply of rifles, machine guns, artillery and ammunition, and U.S. mercenary soldiers. The Administration has allied itself with the armies of white-ruled South Africa against the Angolan government. • Why are we at war in Angola? • A new Vietnam? • We can stop this war now. • What You Can Do
