The Central Intelligence Agency has for years denied that it had a file on Noam Chomsky, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor known both for his contributions to the field of linguistics and (perhaps of more interest to the CIA) his criticism of the U.S. government across many administrations. Now, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, documents have confirmed that the CIA did have a file on Chomsky, and that it may have been scrubbed. The details are in Foreign Policy.
