Ignatius, David. "Spy World Success Story." Washington Post, 2 May 2004, A7. [http://www.washingtonpost.com]

The writer calls INR "one of Washington's hidden jewels.... [T]he bureau has what many regard as the best track record in the government in assessing intelligence issues for policymakers.... The reason INR has been so effective, State Department officials say, is that it has maintained a culture that supports dissent -- and demands expertise."
