Deleted Intelligence Policy Documents

On April 25, 2017, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence unveiled a total resign of its website. Like many agencies, it took this opportunity to delete some documents. Eight of those documents have to do with policy for the intelligence community.

These deletions were very specific. For example, right before the redesign, the page “Intelligence Community Directives” contained 68 directives. Now it has 63.

But it doesn’t stop there. By comparing pages on the current ODNI site with versions in the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, I found that not only did eight policy docs disappear during the redesign, fifteen others had been scrubbed in prior years. Here are all 23 deleted documents, with the most recent eight highlighted in bold.

UPDATE [5/25/2017]: Two colleagues have mentioned that some of these documents have been rescinded or superseded by newer policies. ODNI pulls down documents no longer in effect, which, while not as bad as deleting current documents, is still erasing the historical record. Anyhow, according to the info from Steven Aftergood and Susan Maret, we know that 7 of the 23 documents were rescinded, usually because they were superseded by a newer policy. I’ve noted them below.
