Jeffrey LewisThe Notorious 7.2.1.

And the frickin’ 721 report for 1 January-31 December 2004 is online.

Woo hoo! Thanks Secrecy News!


I knew the verdict on China’s activities would be relatively positive after Gertz claimed that NIC officials were reworking the report to minimize China’s arms proliferation activities, but I was hardly expecting:

One can access past reports on the CIA website.


One last thing, compare the 721 Report section on Iran in tone and substance to this speech by Jackie Sanders in November 2004.
