Current/Central Intelligence Bulletin Collection

Current Intelligence Bulletin

Current/Central Intelligence Bulletin Collection

President Harry Truman received his daily intelligence digest, the Daily Summary, between 1946 and 1951. That year, the "new and improved" version called the Current Intelligence Bulletin began production. This remained the format of the president's daily digest through Dwight Eisenhower's two terms (with a name change to the Central Intelligence Bulletin in 1958). The Current/Central Intellegence Bulletin grew longer than its predecessor over time with the addition of more items and more analysis, and would eventually contain more graphics as printing technology improved.

Part 1: Current Intelligence Bulletin 28 February-30 June 1951
These reports focused on the ongoing Korean War and the steadily growing problem of Vietnam. The Soviets continued to isolate West Berlin and threaten Yugoslavia. The dominant issue covered during these months, however, was Iran's attempt to nationalize the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, and the British efforts to resolve the situation.

Part 2: Current Intelligence Bulletin 1 July-30 December 1951
The primary focus of these reports continued to be the Korean War. Other highlights include the signing of the Japanese Peace Treaty, which formally ended World War II, and the expanding membership of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The fragile post-war order was rocked during this period by the assassinations of King Abdullah of Jordan and Prime Minister Ali Khan of Pakistan.
