Hearings on Lake Held off 2nd Time: Fund-Raising, Missiles at Issue


Gertz, Bill, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


The Senate Intelligence Committee announced yesterday it has postponed for a second time hearings on the nomination of Anthony Lake to be central intelligence director, citing unanswered questions about his role in Democratic Party fund raising and his handling of intelligence on Chinese missile sales.

"I would like to go forward with the hearings as soon as possible," Sen. Richard Shelby, Alabama Republican and committee chairman, told reporters. "I've postponed them now until March the 11th. . . .

Another question relates to Mr. Lake's "role on the estimate of intelligence . . . in the sale of Chinese missiles to Pakistan," he said.

The committee wants to know what role Mr. Lake, as national security adviser, may have played in suppressing intelligence reports that Chinese M-11 missiles are "present and deployed" in Pakistan, a status that would automatically trigger economic sanctions against China under U.S. law.

China was sanctioned for selling M-11 technology and agreed in 1994 not to export entire missiles in exchange for the lifting of the sanctions. …
