National Security Archive

Exploring the Torturing Democracy site (see previous post), I was led to site of its producer, The National Security Archive.  According to the site, the Archive is

an independent non-governmental research institute and library located at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. The Archive collects and publishes declassified documents acquired through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). A tax-exempt public charity, the Archive receives no U.S. government funding; its budget is supported by publication royalties and donations from foundations and individuals. On March 17, 2000, Long Island University named the National Security Archive as winner of a Special George Polk Award for 1999 for “piercing self-serving veils of government secrecy” and “serving as an essential journalistic resource.”

Looks like an incredible primary document resource for teaching 20th Century history.
