The committee heard testimony from present and former Central Intelligence Agency analysts during the seventh day of the confirmation hearings of Robert Gates for the position of director of Central Intelligence. The testimony centered around the issue of whether Mr. Gates, deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency in the mid-1980's, deliberately pressured analysts into slanting analyses to suit the conservative viewpoints of the director of Central Intelligence, William Casey, and Mr. Gates. Sen. Rudman criticized the testimony of witnesses opposing the confirmation of Mr. Gates, claiming the testimony was based on hearsay and personal feelings rather than evidence. Testimony was marked by sharp exchanges between committee members and witnesses. close
