The CIA has declassified a trove of articles from its in-house journal, Studies in Intelligence. Ostensibly a semi-academic review of spycraft, Studies emerges in the pieces, which date from the 1970s to the 2000s, as so much more, at turns mocking excessive secrecy and bad writing, dishing on problematic affairs, and bragging about press manipulation.
Of course, there is plenty of self-serious material in the journal too, including scholarly reviews, first-person memoirs, interviews and intellectual ruminations on everything from maps to “How We Are Perceived” and “Ethics and Clandestine Collection.”
The CIA posted the hundreds of declassified articles to its FOIA site. Here are a few that caught our eye.

Thirteen years after the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, one woman is still searching for the owner of a wedding photo discovered at Ground Zero.
Elizabeth Stringer Keefe tweeted a scan of the weathered photo out to her Twitter followers on Thursday night and called for others to retweet it. Since then, the photo has been retweeted more than 27,000 times (and counting).
Though Keefe and several of her dedicated friends have posted the image to various social media accounts on Sept. 11 each year since the attacks, she told Mashable, the story has never managed to cut through the clutter. In 2011, she posted the image on the 11th of each month to mark the tragedy’s tenth anniversary. But this year, when she shared the image on Twitter, Keefe saw a greater response than ever before; she credited Boston blog Universal Hub with generating interest.
When will 9/9, the day of the release of the new iPhone and Apple Watch replace 9/11 in the consciousness of Americans who put consumption way ahead of civil activism?
The wizards of Apple, who will soon have a device on the market to help you pay your bills, (and take a micro slice) must be aware that consumer borrowing has just seen its biggest hike since November 2001—just two months after the big event—and now stands at a whopping $3.24 TRILLION. According to the Federal Reserve, there has been a hike of $16.01 Billion in July alone.
When I made the film In Debt We Trust in 2006 about the immense debt burden of Americans, I didn’t connect the phenomenon to hikes in federal borrowing to finance our other pre-occupation: war spending. Significantly, earlier in this same week, President Obama asked for another $5 billion for a new costly counter-terrorism offensive to fight ISIS.… Read the rest
