FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Two locations for CIA “family jewels” documents

The National Security Archives at George Washington University is making the CIA “family jewels” documents available as PDFs. “The full “family jewels” report, released today by the Central Intelligence Agency and detailing 25 years of Agency misdeeds, is now available on the Archive’s Web site. The 702-page collection was delivered by CIA officers to the Archive at approximately 11:30 this morning — 15 years after the Archive filed a Freedom of Information request for the documents.
The report is available for download in its entirety and is also split into five smaller files for easier download.”

  • The CIA’s Family Jewels. National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 222, Edited by Thomas Blanton, Posted – June 21, 2007, Updated – June 26, 2007, 1 p.m.

The documents are also available at the CIA website, but I have not been able to find them available except in a one-page-at-a-time image viewer application. There is a link on the CIA FOIA homepage, or you can find the same link by searching “family jewels” or the document number “0001451843.”

For an example of press coverage of the documents, see CIA Releases Files On Past Misdeeds “Assassination Plots, Domestic Spying Cited”, By Karen DeYoung and Walter Pincus Washington Post, June 27, 2007; Page A01.
