Previously classified President’s Daily Brief (PDB) articles from the John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson administrations produced by the CIA are scheduled to be released on Wednesday, September 16 at the LBJ Library’s LBJ Auditorium, at a public symposium entitled “The President’s Daily Brief: Delivering Intelligence to the First Customer.”
The symposium is open to the public, however, seating is limited. Registration is required to attend. Register at https://lbjcia-sept16.eventbrite.com/.
CIA Director John O. Brennan will present the event’s keynote speech and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper will deliver closing remarks. In addition, the event will feature a panel discussion and remarks by other leaders from the academic, archivist, and intelligence communities, including William H. McRaven, Chancellor of the University of Texas System, former CIA Director Porter Goss, former CIA Deputy Director Bobby Inman, and others.
The President’s Daily Brief (PDB), known in Washington as the “PDB,” contains intelligence analysis on crucial national security issues and concerns. Only the president, the vice president, and a small group of officials designated by the president receive the briefing, which one historian has described as the world’s smallest circulation, most highly classified newspaper.
Doors open at 12 p.m. CT. Due to space limitations, backpacks and large bags will not be allowed inside the LBJ Auditorium.
