Earlier this month, the National Security Agency released several brief historical essays that had been prepared for the Agency’s Cryptologic Almanac on the occasion of its 50th anniversary in 2002. The essays were declassified on April 10 in response to a Mandatory Declassification Review request from Michael Ravnitzky. They include (all pdf):

“Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?” on the origins of NSA.

“SIGINT and the Fall of Saigon, April 1975”

“The First Round: NSA’s Effort Against International Terrorism in the 1970s”

“A Brief Look at ELINT at NSA”
