- The Central Intelligence Agency is declassifying hundreds of pages of documents on secret operations from over three decades ago, CIA Director Michael Hayden said.

The so-called "Family Jewels" document overseas assassination attempts, domestic spying, kidnapping and infiltration of leftist groups from the 1950s to the 1970s, according to a summary posted on the Web site of the National Security Archive at George Washington University.

The CIA chief said the documents provide a glimpse of "a very different time and a very different agency."

If you believe that last line, I've still got that land in Florida I'll sell ya'.

Wonder if there will be details of how they were involved in overthrowing legitimate governments in Iran, South Vietnam, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Chile, etc., etc., etc.?

Doubt it . . . .
