This chapter explores the issue of declassification, charting the battles that have been fought over the incorporation of CIA activity within the State Department's long-established documentary series, Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS). The CIA's role in the ‘declassification wars’ that have plagued the FRUS series provides fascinating insights into the CIA's motivation for protecting its equity in the contested landscape of US foreign policy.

Keywords:   declassification, State Department, Foreign Relations of the United States, US foreign policy
