From the article:
Last week, CIA chief Michael Hayden announced the decision to declassify the records, saying the documents were "unflattering but part of CIA history".
The documents detail assassination plots, domestic spying, wiretapping, and kidnapping.
The incidents include:
* the confinement of a Soviet KGB defector, Yuriy Ivanovich Nosenko, in the mid-1960s
* attempts to use a suspected Mafia mobster, Johnny Roselli, in a plot to assassinate Cuba's Fidel Castro
* the wiretapping and surveillance of journalists, including in 1972 columnist Jack Anderson who broke a string of scandals"

My son turns 10 today and he wants an electronics kit for his b-day. Anyone have any good recomendations? I had one when I was little but none of the diagrams worked. I was particlarly dissapointed with the 'lie detector' schematic that pretty much assumed you had just run a mile is liquid copper to work properly.
What are some good kits that are out there now?
