A font of government

Wikileaks got a hold of some 1,700 Congressional Research Service reports. Is this important? Very.

While mostly in the language of policy wonks, Congressional Research Service reports are extremely thorough and respected across the government as non-partisan. The CRS is basically the government's think tank, but its reports are unavailable to the public, even though the CRS has a working budget of about $100 million. Wikileaks managed to snag nearly 2,000 of these reports, topics running the very literal gamut of everything.
