This is a 5-page "Spot Report" to the IOB. It is undated, except for a handwritten note at the top that says "2007-12." The CIA has redacted almost all information from the report, however, the agency left in an interesting footnote. The footnote cites 50 U.S.C. 403-7 and notes "It is the policy of the United States that an element of the Intelligence Community may not use as an agent or asset for the purposes of collecting intelligence any individual who" is a representative of the media unless "the President or the DCIA" waives this prohibition.
