CIA Releases Millions Of Documents Onto The Internet After Kickstarter Harrassment Campaign
international | rights, freedoms and repression | other press Wednesday January 18, 2017 18:28 by lefty
A kickstarter campaign plus a dedicated campaign of relentless annoyance by an activist has led to the CIA reluctantly releasing 13 million of their archived documents for public viewing on the internet. Releases from 1994 to 2016 are included. This translates as all documents from 1969 until 1989 They are released under Bill Clinton’s 1995 Executive Order 13526 instituted in 2006. One of the few good things he ever did.The Executive Order requires the declassification of non-exempt historically valuable records 25 years or older. These documents were previously only physically accessible from four computers at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland using the CIA Records Search Tool Get searching folks. It's a treasure trove!
Fantastic story I think :p
The Central Intelligence Agency has released a bulk archive of 13 million pages of declassified documents online. These documents were previously only physically accessible from four computers at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland using the CIA Records Search Tool or CREST.
Information about a number of controversial topics is included: from UFOs, to more information on the infamous CIA psychic experiments Project Stargate, to Henry Kissinger’s papers, other CIA research and development documents, scientific papers, photographic intelligence reports, news archives, and a whole lot more according to the official CIA press release.
Here's how best "bested " the CIA culture of fake transparency:
Best began scanning and printing 700,000 documents manually and publishing them for the entire world to see, effectively costing the CIA resources as the agency doesn’t charge for printer paper or the ink used.

while you are there and on the subject of CIA, check out
Please support the website http://wearechange.org/ if you can. It's one of the few independent media sites left out there that is not just merely a front for clickbait and fake news
It would be fun if people had a root in the CIA archive and posted what they found of interest there. It's a treasure trove!!
And here's the link to the CIA press release.
And a link to the CREST archive itself
The search does not work for me at the moment. Hopefully they'll get that going soon. but you can browse the document collections in the left column.
Happy hunting folks! ;-)
