U.S. Intelligence and the Indian Bomb [pdf]

Though it has been some time since the Scout Report has mentioned the
various electronic briefing books published by The National Security Archive
at George Washington University, it is good to know that their fine work has
continued unabated, and this latest effort is very intriguing. Released in
April 2006, this National Security Archive electronic briefing book brings
together 40 formerly classified documents that detail the efforts of the US
intelligence community to monitor civilian and military nuclear energy
activities in India. Drawn from the period 1958 to 1998, these various
documents and reports comment on a wide range of material, ranging from
nuclear policy, reactor construction, foreign assistance, nuclear tests, and
the international ramifications of such tests. Overall, this is a collection
of documents that will be of great interest to any one with an interest in
the history of nuclear policy, proliferation, and diplomacy.
