Wikileaks kicks out the jams: 1000s of Congressional Research Service reports now released!
The Congressional Research Service is an obscure wonky staff office (annual budget: $100 million!) of the U.S. Congress that releases policy analyses on a variety of subjects, but these reports are traditionally not released to the general public. If you somehow caught word of something good in one of their reports, you had to either get it through skeezy Beltway info peddlers or via the offices of your congressional representatives. Interestingly, the CRS has lobbied to prevent its own work product from going out to the general public.
Fortunately, the rockstars at Wikileaks.org have gotten ahold of BILLION DOLLARS of research, more than 6000 new documents out there. Here's the chronological index, the alphabetical index, and OpenCRS.com must be having a party right now. NICE!! (And if you have a spare dime, increasingly popular/legally embattled WikiLeaks could really use it!) If anyone finds anything interesting, post it!! (h/t cryptome.org)
