NSA Cold War Papers Released:
Stories of Spies
In this historic specialized committee, delegates will address the powers of the National Security Agency (NSA) during the Cold War while acting as a special committee representing multiple interest groups. Members of the special committee will be tasked with limiting or enhancing the NSA’s reach in their working papers by considering Cold War-era communication capabilities, technological developments, public perceptions, and economic circumstances.
As the Cold War progresses, unprecedented intelligence challenges will face the nation. Espionage will be one of the primary concerns the United States and its allies confront. Covert operations, code-breaking, cryptology, and reconnaissance missions may be deployed in response to the perceived threat. Directives will be necessary to move the committee session forward and require the special committee’s immediate attention.
