AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The CIA is scheduled to release some previously classified intelligence documents showing how the United States was watching the buildup to the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.

The release of hundreds of pages will be part of a symposium Friday at the Lyndon Baines Johnson presidential library in Austin. They include an Aug. 2 warning that Moscow had built a large invasion force in about two weeks. Eighteen days later, troops started rolling into Czechoslovakia to crush liberal political, economic and social reforms.
