Dear Mr. Bartley:
articleovember edition of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
^^clalms that the CIA made public information from Mr. Yurchenko concerningcdward Howard and leaked Information about the disappearance of Nicholas Shadrin. These statements are falsehoods and are resented deeply by the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA has made no information public concerning Mr. Yurchenko. Moreover,s forbidden by Presidential Executiverom propagandizing or attempting to influence the American public. We adhere to this restriction. The unfortunate leaks of Mr. Yurchenko's information to the media have come from sources other than the Agency as virtually all journalists in Washington other than your reporter know. These leaks are currently under investigation.
