  I National Intelligence Estimates (NIEs) were high-level interdepartmental
re-
ports presenting authoritative appraisals of vital foreign policy problems.
NIEs were
drafted by officers from those agencies represented on the Intelligence Advisory
Committee (IAC), discussed and revised by interdepartmental working groups
co-
ordinated by the Office of National Estimates of the Central Intelligence
Agency
(CIA), approved by the IAC, and circulated under the aegis of the CIA to
the Presi-
dent, appropriate officers of Cabinet level, and the National Security Council.
The
Department of State provided all political and some economic sections of
NIEs.
  2 A note on the cover sheet reads as follows: "The intelligence organizations
of the
Departments of State, the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, and the Joint Staff
par-
ticipated with the Central Intelligence Agency in the preparation of this
estimate.
All members of the Intelligence Advisory Committee concurred in this estimate
on
27 March 1952."
