In need of some summertime reading? Why not look to the CIA for material? The Freedom of Information Act Electronic Reading Room has thousands of declassified documents online complete with redacted words and sentences. You might wish to start with The Family Jewels, one of the FOIA Electronic Reading Room’s featured collections:

The first collection, widely known as the “Family Jewels,” consists of almost 700 pages of responses from CIA employees to a 1973 directive from Director of Central Intelligence James Schlesinger asking them to report activities they thought might be inconsistent with the Agency’s charter.

To get an idea of the sorts of subjects that most interest visitors to the FOIA Electronic Reading Room, have a look at the top searches for the last two months. It should come as no surprise that “UFO” is near the top each month.
