Covert Action: Kenneth Lawrence.

Covert Action, a report by Danny Miller, begins with an interview with Kenneth Lawrence, a regular contributor to the Covert Action Information Bulletin, a magazine published around five times a year in Washington, D. C., which covers the actions of the C. I. A. The publication is known for its "Naming Names" feature which reveals the name of C. I. A. agents. Covert Action claims that the information in the column is unclassified or of agents who are no longer working. However, they have suspended the column due to pending legislation. Lawrence is a reporter known for his investigations into the F. B. I.'s involvement in the Civil Rights Movement. (INTERVIEW BY DANNY MILLER)
