THE CIA is set to destroy a stash of formerly top secret records, insisting they’re of no value.

The National Archives and Records Administration tentatively approved the CIA proposal.

It argued that several types of records should be fine to destroy after 30 years.

Among them are previously-leaked files and security clearance information.

There’s also behavioural conduct files and personality files with counterintelligence interests.

Records bosses say leaks have little research importance since significant cases are already available elsewhere.

So far the CIA hasn’t identified what specific leaked material would be destroyed, beyond a broad paragraph-long description.

But it’s said enough to worry campaigners, who claim the secretive agency has a history of destroying important files.

Nate Jones, director of the Freedom Of Information Act Project, urged them to err on the side of preservation.

“History has shown that they are too eager to destroy their records,” Mr Jones told The Daily Beast.

“The CIA does not have a lot of good will for preserving historically relevant documents.”

For example, files detailing the CIA’s role in the 1953 coup in Iran were destroyed.
