From CIA's Archives: Memos mentioning Senator Joseph Biden
Spanning nearly 50 years of public service, Senator Biden’s lengthy involvement in government has built for him a record of policymaking unlike that of his competitors.
This distinction carries over into the Central Intelligence Agency’s CREST archive, a collection of millions of documents declassified under Obama’s Executive Order 13526, which required the automatic declassification and release of materials older than 25 years and of historical value.
In part due to Biden’s time on the Senate Select Committee for Intelligence, created in the wake of the Church Committee revelations, a search of CREST returns thousands of records - news articles, memos, letters, and more - referencing the Senator.
