Lambert 06/13/2013 09:20 AM FW: Photograph question (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(3) (b)(o) Classification: UNCLASSIFIED The story of the UBL exhibit is quite complex. For reasons beyond the scope of this note, some of the Directorates were opposed to displaying this artifact in the CIA Museum. After lengthy debate (over a year), CIO/IMS over-ruled the objection on the condition that it would only be in the CIA museum and not otherwise released. These artifacts are phenomenally popular with visitors to the Museum. If we pull the sheet all the way back on this, we'll let you know, there are a few other artifacts and paintings around CIA that have similar issues. Toni Hiley, the CIA Museum Curator is the driving force in researching, identifying, obtaining and leveraging artifacts that help make our past real to those working here, family, and visitors.
