The CIA’s “Family Jewels”

The CIA released some historical documents today which were called “Family Jewels”:

The family jewels is the informal name used to refer to a set of reports that detail the illegal activities conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States in a roughly quarter-century period in the 1950s and 1970s.[1] William Colby, who was the CIA director in the mid-1970s and helped in the compilation of the reports, dubbed them the “skeletons” in the CIA’s closet.

Here’s the direct link to the documents.
