CIA to Release Decades of Dirty Laundry

Speaking at a meeting of The Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, Director of the CIA General Michael V. Hayden announced that next week the agency would release most of the so-called ”Family Jewels,” a 693-page set of documents compiled in 1973, when Director James R. Schlesinger asked employees to report on notorious operations they thought might be inconsistent with the agency’s charter. “Much of it has been in the press before, and most of it is unflattering, but it is CIA’s history,” said Hayden.
