THE CHARGES against Robert Gates last week could not be more serious. His own colleagues at the Central Intelligence Agency, one of whom advanced and prospered within the agency under his guidance, said that Gates skewed intelligence to conform to the political wishes of superiors. These analysts said that Gates systematically and deliberately quashed dissent the single most important issue the agency had to deal with: the Soviet Union.While agency analysts were trying to get the word out that the Soviet economy was in a death spin and that the reforms of Mikhail Gorbachev were genuine, Gates was promoting just the opposite conclusion: that the Soviet Union was still an economic juggernaut with increasing military prowess.

Boston -- WILLIAM CASEY, President Reagan's director of central intelligence, made a secret trip to Baghdad in March 1982. After his visit the United States removed Saddam Hussein's Iraq from the list of countries supporting terrorism -- a decision that allowed Iraq to acquire sensitive U.S. technology.But the Reagan administration knew that Iraq was in fact still sponsoring terrorism, paying for it, supplying the tools of murder. One terrorist organization, operating as an instrument of Iraqi military intelligence, carried out bomb attacks on American, Israeli and Jewish targets around the world.

Chicago. -- The charge that the Reagan campaign team of 1980 tried to delay the release of American hostages in Iran is a serious one, and hard to believe. It is true that the Reagan people feared an ''October surprise'' by which Jimmy Carter might pull his election out of the fire. In the same way, Richard Nixon's team had feared that Lyndon Johnson would produce some magic peace settlement in Vietnam during the 1968 campaign. Henry Kissinger did some spying to keep the Nixon people from being caught off guard.

HOLLYWOOD -- Now that "JFK," Oliver Stone's take on the Kennedy assassination, is on its way to theater next month, what's left for socially conscious filmmakers looking for conspiracies to unravel? Now there's the "October Surprise" -- the dark tale of political intrigue that suggests President Bush and the late William Casey were involved in a plot to delay the release of U.S. hostages held in Iran until after the 1980 presidential election. The controversial subject has already spawned books and could be headed for the big screen.

The Harford County Council is scheduled to hear a zoning appeals case Tuesday involving a controversy that began more than a year ago over a trailer sales business in Joppa. Jesse and Michele Hadaway of the 1600 block of Crestview Road are seeking a special exception to run their business, which the county says has been operating illegally on the 3.9-acre property. The Hadaways have sought to have subpoenas requesting information about the business quashed and the hearing examiner replaced, court records show.
