A Washington-based think tank filed a lawsuit to force the Central Intelligence Agency to search its archives for any documents showing CIA links to a vigilante group in Bogotá that helped Colombian and U.S. authorities track down drug lord Pablo Escobar. The Institute of Policy Studies said the agency’s policies in not searching for information related to sources and methods keep it from obtaining any public records that may exist. (5/24/06)
