CIA searches... The public's top searches

From USNWR:

Ask the CIA: the Public's Top 10 List
So what, exactly, do people think the CIA has been up to? Apparently not much good. On its website, the CIA posts documents from the past half-century that have been released to the public (most through Freedom of Information Act requests). The top 10 most popular search terms in October were:
10. Iran
9. Guatemala
8. Afghanistan
7. Bay of Pigs
6. Iraq
5. mind control
4. China
3. Area 51
2. Vietnam
And No. 1? That would be UFO.


This site on the CIA's FOIA site includes the most requested documents, which is somewhat interesting too.
