According to the Washington Post, the CIA is revising its procedures for clearing the publication of
books or articles by currently employed analysts and case officers in
the wake of controversy generated by the best-selling book, "Imperial
Hubris: How the West Is Losing the War on Terrorism.

contractual secrecy agreement employees sign, as well as federal law
and executive orders — Hedley wrote, "is to help people to publish in
a way that will not cause a problem for them, the agency or for the
country."
