Link to Archive or Database:



The FOIA Electronic Reading Room is provided as a public service by the Directorate of Digital Innovation’s Information Management Services.

Here you can view documents released through the FOIA and other CIA release programs. If you would like to view our previously released documents and collections, visit the Historical Collections page to Browse the Collections, which includes links to all collections previously found on the CREST: 25-Year Program Archive and Freqeuently Requested Records pages, as well as individual collections of documents on historically significant topics compiled by our office. Please note that not all documents reside in collections, so you may wish to perform an overall document search as well as browse the collections you are interested in. You can search all the documents by using the search bar on the Advanced Search page. Because of CIA’s need to comply with U.S. national security laws, some documents – or parts of documents – cannot be released to the public. Specifically, the CIA has the responsibility to protect intelligence sources and methods from disclosure.
