Chapter 16: The Doolittle Committee

President Eisenhower learns that Pawley believes there was breach of national security because of a comment made during tennis by Washington Post publisher Phil Graham. Ike then tells Pawley he wants him to conduct a thorough investigation of the covert side of CIA operations. The group became known as the Doolittle Committee, comprised of Pawley, World War II hero General James Doolittle, accountant William Franke and Rockefeller attorney Morris Hadley.
