Cryptome is scanning all the dossiers in the INSCOM Counter-intelligence Collection and will offer them on a DVD when ready in a few weeks. The collection will exceed 18,000 pages (~1GB PDFs) of declassified military counter-intelligence (CI) data -- ranging from lengthy reports on national intelligence agencies to single page reports on suspected spies and associates -- demonstrating the spies' wholesale gathering of everything on the chance that it may someday prove useful. Several country dossiers consist of thousands of pages. While many pages have been denied release (none of those originating with the CIA), and many names have been redacted there are thousands of persons identified by name, place and date of birth, eye and hair color, height and weight, liquor and sexual habits, distinctive behavior and vanities, and for whom they toil. Smaller dossiers recently scanned:

West Germany Intelligence Services:

Italy Terrorism:

Cuba Intelligence Services Organization:

Cuba Intelligence Services Facilities:

Argentina Intelligence Services: (includes unredacted "Survey of the  Major Police Forces of Argentina," by USAID)

Cryptome filed a Freedom of Information Act request on March 29, 2001 to the US Army Intelligence and Security Command for a long list of intelligence dossiers:

INSCOM has courteously provided to date about 8,025 pages of declassified documents and other responses as listed here. Other agencies have provided an additional 56 pages. Many of the pages are completely or heavily redacted. Many of the files are raw intelligence reports, most in English and some in other languages; and only a few are final intelligence assessments. As far as can be told from declassification stamps and dates, none of the files were declassified in response to Cryptome's request, thus may be available elsewhere.

"To NARA" means that the dossier has been transferred from INSCOM to the National Archives and Records Administration. "No Records" means that INSCOM could find no records of the dossier. See: "3 of 120" means that only 3 pages of a 120-page dossier was provided. Blank cells means that no dossier information has been provided to date.

Cryptome may digitize and offer selected files that are most complete and informative. Researchers who may need copies of dossiers immediately may request early digitization as multi-image TIFF files. Bear in mind that the more requested the longer the wait. Don't even think about requesting the 2,600 and 1,500 page East German dossiers. Send modest requests to: It is just possible that the entire collection will be digitized when all responses from INSCOM have been received. A few files received early on have been digitized:
