If you’ve ever wondered why one of the most secretive organizations in the world is committed to #transparency, or how we go about protecting American’s privacy & civil liberties, keep reading.
Ben Huebner runs CIA’s Privacy & Civil Liberties Office.

His job is to look at our programs & practices to make sure we’re living up to our commitment to safeguard American’s privacy & civil liberties.

He’s also leading CIA’s efforts to increase #transparency.
CIA’s mission & the safety of the men & women who contribute to it will always require certain information to be #classified.

The key is there needs to be a real, identifiable, justifiable reason why that fact, that method, or that source needs to remain secret.
Recent CIA #transparency initiatives:

- CIA’s AG Guidelines (our core US person’s protection rules) published in-full on CIAgov
- CREST (25-year release collection) of 12M+ docs available on CIAgov
- Release of historic #PDB & #FOIA collections
- expanding social media presence
Ben Huebner: “When we talk about transparency, release is part of it, but it’s not the whole ball of wax. Accessibility is part of transparency. Providing information to people in a way that’s easier to find, understandable, & relevant. Those are all parts of #transparency too.”
Ben Huebner: “Given our mission, we have a greater responsibility than I think almost anyone to an adherence to the truth.”
