The State Department redacted the dollar amount of the 1970 intelligence budget in an article in the latest volume of Foreign Relations of the United States report, saying the information had not been declassified. But, Secrecy News pointed out, the amount allocated, $6 billion, had been disclosed in an earlier version of the same publication. State said it had called the inconsistency to the attention of the CIA and the report would be modified. (12/27/06)
