The Office of the Director of National Intelligence published this legal reference book for the intelligence community in the Summer of 2009. "On behalf of the Director of National Intelligence, I am pleased to make available the updated Summer 2009 Intelligence Community Legal Reference Book. We have expanded and updated the Reference Book to reflect legal developments in 2008 and 2009 and in response to comments received from the Intelligence Community regarding the first edition published in December 2007. The Intelligence Community draws much of its authority and guidance from the body of law contained in this collection. We hope this proves to be a useful resource to professionals across the federal government. This new edition is the result of many hours of hard work. I would like to extend my thanks to those across the Community who assisted the Office of General Counsel in recommending and preparing the authorities contained herein. I hope you find this book a valuable addition to your library and a useful tool as you carry out your vital mission."
