QUERY: Thoughts on Declassified President's Daily Brief

Dear fellow scholars:

I spent some time last week looking through the newly declassified President's Daily Briefs.  I plan to write a scholarly article about these documents, focussing mostly on politicization, the politics of language/labelling and how we understand authorship. 

However, I thought it might be interesting to have a number of scholars come together to weigh in on what we could learn from these documents.

Is there interest in:

1.  A themed panel on the subject for a scholarly conference like APSA or ISA?

H-Intel in need of editors


As H-Net's Vice-President of Networks, I have been acting as Interim Editor of H-Intel, which lacks editors and an Advisory Board. Without both, H-Intel is in danger of shutting down. I am heartened by the recent flurry of activity here, but it has included some posts that require a level of expertise well beyond my own. H-Intel needs field experts to assume control. I know my way around H-Net--I know nothing of intelligence history and intelligence studies.
