3. See, for example, U.S. Department of Agriculture, World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, at www.usda.gov/oce/commodity/wasde/latest.pdf; and U.S. Energy Information Administration, Annual Energy Outlook Early Release Overview, Report No. DOE/EIA-0383 (2009), December 14, 2009, at www.eia.doe.gov/oiaf/ aeo/overview.html.

4. Office of the Director of National Intelligence, “DNI Releases Budget Figure for 2010 National Intelligence Program,” October 28, 2010, at www.dni.gov/press_ releases/20101028_2010_NIP_release.pdf.

6. This point is discussed at greater length in Chapter 4.

7. This is not to suggest that scholars, journalists, bankers, diplomats, or many others who routinely ask questions and gather information are “spies.” “Spies” use clandestine or covert means to obtain information; the others cited here are what is known in the jargon of intelligence as “overt collectors,” and the information they collect and disseminate is referred to as “open-source intelligence” in Washington’s arcane way of referring to ordinary information.
