The CIA Laid Off the People Who Declassify Their Secrets

The Historical Collections Division is the office that catalogs the record of our nation's clandestine service and decides how much of it the American public gets to see — and they all just lost their jobs because of the sequester. The Los Angeles Times reports that the mandated budget cuts have forced the CIA to disband the division and fold its duties into the same super efficient and speedy office that handles Freedom of Information Acts requests from the public.
The people who handle historical records like Cold War spy reports and Iranian coup plans are probably considered non-essential worker by an agency focused on present day threats, but the loss will put a big damper on the work of historians and other academics hoping to study the CIA's past. Unlike the Pentagon, which forced many of its employees into temporary furloughs after the government-wide sequester kicked in, the CIA mostly eliminated contractors, many of whom pour over the boxes and boxes of decades-old documents to determine what is safe to be declassified. Like the fact that CIA once overthrew the Prime Minister of Iran. We only had to wait 60 years to find out about that.
The closure doesn't mean that no more records will be ever be declassified, since a lot of the declassification is required by law take place after a set number years. That those duties will now be handled by the FOIA office is not encouraging, however. One lawyer who often does battle with the CIA in courts told the Times that the unit "is the most obstructionist and unfriendly of those I have dealt with during the last two decades." When you're dealing with people whose job is to keep secrets, obviously giving out more information is not high on their priority list.

By IFS Staff

Donna L. Demok, president of priZm pictures, celebrating
 her five years in broadcasting. Started out as a music
 programmer for SDC Radio Networks in 1998.


MEMPHIS (IFS) -- A real natural when it comes to radio broadcasting.  It just comes to her.  Her voice is hypnotic and pleasant while she pulls you into a "mind melt"  including you through  one of her worlds of laughter, tears, heartbreaks, glorious times, the dark and the light of Donna Demok.

Demok slipped into a glorious world of broadcast with her first audio.  She should have started earlier.  It comes very natural to her.  She's easy to listen too and provides comfort for living with todays family issues.

As a seasoned veteran, Demok's awards have included SDC-TV's Television Producers Award in August 2008, along with her Most Valuable Broadcaster's Award from September 1998, as the producer and programmer for Country Rock KDTN Radio One and the SDC Radio Networks.

Her priZm films company have produced "American Nomads"," Heart and Flowers", "Ribbon's Of Steel" with various parts on NBC-TV.

Demok is posed  to release new a  follow-up Audio Radio Interview to -  Hearts and Flowers to the internet YouTube.com broadcast that's over eight years old.  Moving the audio to the Blog talk radio format was a stroke of luck.  The show exploded, becoming KDTN BlogTalk Radio Show's hottest downloads for the listenership.

It was a magical radio hit alone.  Just the title of Hearts and Flowers describes the relationships of women who are usually attacked by the spouse.  Demok's relationship with this subject is personal.  She admits that the "making up part of the relationship is like a new honeymoon, with flowers, candy, new clothes, shoes, vacations, Demok adds, that one can get addicted to this cycle of love and hate with presents at the end.



Other notables for Donna Demok's priZm pictures include segments on NBC-TV and many sites around the internet.
