Intelwire.com, a national security website, on Thursday posted online nearly 800 pages of documentation it received in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed with the CIA.
The documents were released in response to an INTELWIRE Freedom of Information Act request for material referenced by the 9/11 Commission. Numerous documents were withheld, and those that were released have been heavily redacted. Despite this, it is highly unusual to receive any material from the CIA in response to a FOIA request, and they provide a fascinating look at the state of the agency’s understanding of Al Qaeda over the years.
