When the final history is written on Iraq, it'll look like just a comma.

For a cold war collection, it's awfully devoid of documents on the Soviet Union. I saw the payware National Security Archive when some website had a trial open and there were some cool CIA documents in there from the late 1950s speculating about how nuclear attacks on the U.S. would unfold. There's also a good document I think on the Washington University FOIA site that has a former top-secret history of the reconnaissance program, up until the 1960s... well worth perusing.

Is this part of the Cold War International History Project?

It says it's supported by the CWIHP... and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, George Washington University, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
