An independent non-governmental research institute and library located at The George Washington University, the National Security Archive (http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/) collects and publishes declassified documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. It also serves as a repository of government records on topics pertaining to the national security, foreign, intelligence, and economic policies of the United States.

In 1999, the Archive won the George Polk Award, one of U.S. journalism’s most prestigious prizes, for–in the words of the citation–“piercing the self-serving veils of government secrecy, guiding journalists in the search for the truth and informing us all.”
