The Central Intelligence Agency has released five newly declassified documents. The release states that each document related to a 2005 Office of Inspector General (OIG) report examing the Agency's accountability regarding the previous findings and conclusions from an inquiry into intelligence community activities before and after the attacks of September 11th. 

The release notes that the Agency, in response to FOIA requests for the full 2005 OIG report, conducted an extensive review of the nearly 500-page document, releasing information that no longer needed to be protected for national security interests. It also explains that the documents "reflect differing views formed roughly a decade ago within the CIA about the Agency's performance prior to 9/11/"
