<p>This release includes 262 articles from <em>SIDtoday</em> covering the first half of 2004. A recurring theme is information overload, with the NSA disclosing collection of a staggering 85 billion call metadata records, struggling to translate communication in other languages, and failing to effectively monitor all the computer networks it had hacked worldwide. An agency staffer also wrote a damning historical account of how the Reagan White House “cavalierly” leaked what appeared to be raw, classified intelligence related to Nicaragua. The historical account is the focus of a related Intercept article published with this batch of documents; NSA support of federal law enforcement, the OPSEC slip-ups of agency employees, and a wide range of other topics are covered in an accompanying roundup article.</p>
