You might think that sounds conspiratorial. It is. But remember how much some parts of the civil service hate transparency. It is already quite common for officials to mark documents as «policy» and «sensitive» because they (incorrectly) think it will make it easier to refuse requests. The Department for Education installed an instant messenger system that is set up to destroy data immediately so conversations are never recorded and so can never be requested.
The civil service has proposed previously that time officials spent «considering» requests and redacting them should be capped. These proposals could be lethal to the act in Whitehall. At the moment, officials are asked to estimate how much time it would take to find documents. If the estimate is that it could cost more than a certain limit, they go no further. A common complaint about the lowest transparency departments is that they often lie to inflate these costs so they can refuse releases.

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides the public with the right to access government documents and records. The law provides that an individual may ask a public body for a copy of its records on a specific subject and that the public body must provide those records, unless there is an exemption in the statute that protects those records from disclosure, such as when the record contains an individual’s private information.
Please be as specific as possible in any request for information. For your convenience, you may obtain a FOIA request form at the Orland Township office, or download one here , but the form is not required. Please note in your request whether you would like copies of the requested records or whether you would like to examine them in person. Please include your name, preferred telephone number, mailing address, and email address.

Current/Central Intelligence Bulletin Collection Central Intelligence Bulletin Harry Truman was the first U.S. president to receive a daily intelligence digest. At his direction, the Daily Summary began production in February 1946, and continued until February 1951. President Truman was pleased with the product, but a survey group commissioned by the National Security Council in 1949 was critical of the Daily Summary and issued several recommendations to improve it. The new version, called the Current Intelligence Bulletin, began production on 28 February 1951, and this remained the format of the president’s daily digest through Dwight Eisenhower’s two terms, although it was retitled the Central Intelligence Bulletin in 1958. The Current/Central Intelligence Bulletin grew longer than its predecessor over time with the addition of more items and more analysis, and would eventually contain more graphics as printing technology improved. 2 January-30 June 1961 The new Kennedy Administration confronted a full array of international issues in 1961. In April, a group of CIA-trained Cuban exiles landed at the Bay of Pigs on the southern coast of Cuba with the goal of overthrowing the Fidel Castro regime and establishing an anti-Communist government. The outnumbered invading force was quickly repelled by Castro’s troops. The year’s reports were dominated by the worsening Congo crisis, with the fragmentation of the country widening despite the efforts of the United Nations, and US concern over the high tempo of Soviet testing of space vehicles and intercontinental ballistic missiles. The situation in Laos deteriorated, as the Communist Pathet Lao insurgency gained strength against the US-backed Royal Lao government. The changes at the CIA following the Bay of Pigs included a format update for the president’s daily intelligence report. The new version, called the President’s Intelligence Checklist (PICL), was first delivered on 17 June 1961. The Central Intelligence Bulletin continued to be produced as a separate publication until 10 Jan 1974, when it was replaced by the National Intelligence Daily. The PICL, however, was the president’s primary written intelligence source through the remainder of the Kennedy Administration. The Kennedy PICL reports are available here This historical release includes: the Central Intelligence Bulletin reports from 2 January-30 June 1961 (2752 pages). This release is the thirteenth and final release in the Current/Central Intelligence Bulletin series. See the Current/Central Intelligence Bulletin Collection

Aquiline aquiline adj. of or like the eagle. Aerial intelligence collection platforms have played a critical role in US national security from the earliest beginnings of aviation. CIA’s 1960s OXCART Program and its use of U-2s are examples of collection innovations that have kept US leaders informed about adversaries’ capabilities and intentions. Despite their success, however, use of these platforms carried significant risks and repercussions, including detection and even pilot loss, such as the downing of the U-2 flown by Francis Gary Powers in 1960. Ever-evolving research by the CIA led to the development concept of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as collection platforms. An innovative Agency program in the 1960s codenamed Aquiline was the very first to test this concept. Based initially on the study of flight characteristics of birds, Aquiline was envisioned as a long-range vehicle that could safely and stealthily provide a window into denied areas such as the Soviet Union through photography and other capabilities, and would even support in-place agent operations. While it never became operational, the concept proved invaluable as a forerunner to today’s multi-capability UAVs. Learn more about CIA’s early eagle (40 documents/289 pages).
