From the web site:
Covert Action Infor­ma­tion Bul­letin
began pub­lish­ing in 1978, and cur­rently issues a well-produced quar­terly of about 70 pages with no adver­tis­ing. Some themes include CIA in acad­e­mia, the new world order, CIA in East­ern Europe, George Bush, domes­tic sur­veil­lance, CIA and drugs, AIDS, the reli­gious right, and the Nazi-Vatican-CIA nexus. Most arti­cles con­tain plenty of foot­notes. Most names from almost every issue through 1992 (Num­ber 42) are in Name­Base; since Num­ber 43 the mag­a­zine changed its name to Covert Action Quar­terly (CAQ) and the index­ing in Name­Base has been more selective.

Before 1982, this pub­li­ca­tion was best known for its “Nam­ing Names” col­umn, which tracked CIA offi­cers under diplo­matic cover by research­ing the State Depart­ment Bio­graphic Reg­is­ter and the diplo­matic lists issued by the U.S. and other coun­tries. This finally became ille­gal when Rea­gan signed the Intel­li­gence Iden­ti­ties Pro­tec­tion Act. CAIB was forced to drop this col­umn and also became gen­er­ally more cau­tious on the mat­ter of CIA names. One for­eign pub­li­ca­tion is con­tin­u­ing the ear­lier tra­di­tion, but CAIB/CAQ’s rep­u­ta­tion for qual­ity, con­sis­tency, and accu­racy make it a hard act to follow.
