ODNI Releases FY 2009 Budget Book (Redacted)

01.24.13 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has released a heavily redacted version of its Congressional Budget Justification Book for Fiscal Year 2009 in response to a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

Although most of the substance of the document has been withheld, a number of details of interest (to some) have been preserved.  So, for example, the glossary explains that “CAPNet is a secure private network permitting electronic connectivity between the Legislative Branch of the Federal Government, principally the intelligence oversight committees, and certain intelligence community personnel, primarily in the legislative liaison offices.”

Budget books for several subsequent years have also been released and will be posted in coming days.
