An FBI agent who authored a secret bureau interrogation manual made the seemingly unusual decision to submit the document for copyright protection, thereby making it publicly accessible through the Library of Congress, according to a new report.
The agent requested a copyright for the interrogation manual in 2010, leaving a copy with the US Copyright Office, where with a simple request US citizens are allowed to view any materials archived there. The employee, a supervisory agent who also worked as a unit chief with the FBI counterterrorism division, was unnamed in a report by Mother Jones, the first source to publish the story.
