The CIA has posted almost 10 million pages of its records online. Anyone with an internet connection can go through the files to excavate 50 years’ worth of declassified intelligence reports and briefings.
The CIA aims to improve transparency
Joseph Lambert, the CIA’s director of information management, told BuzzFeed that all the documents have not been released, but no documents were reclassified before CREST’s online appearance.
“This is one of the things that we think improves transparency for us, and it’s a simple thing” to make information “more widely available,” Lambert told Bloomberg.
