“A Tangled Web Woven,” by David E. Kaplan, US News and World Report, January 30, 2006
Practiced in the art of deception, it seems that the Central Intelligence Agency is being selective in what official govt reports it releases to citizens. According to the US News, “since 2003, at least three unclassified CSI reports–all critical of the agency–have been withheld from the CIA’s website … During that same time, the agency has placed online three other CSI reports, all of those relatively positive or neutral.”
I’m sure these reports would make valuable additions for any library collection. To obtain the reports, contact the Center for the Study of Intelligence at 1-703-613-1753, or order through government publication vendors listed on CSI’s website. Interestingly, GPO is one of those vendors listed, so perhaps libraries can request it as part of the FDLP. The titles are:
- “Curing Analytic Pathologies.” December, 2005.
- “Analytic Culture in the U.S. Intelligence Community.” May, 2005.
- “Intelligence for a New Era in American Foreign Policy.” 2004.
