Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports 1941-1996


FBIS Daily Reports include English-language, full-text broadcasts and news transcripts—translated as needed—from around the world.

Includes reports from Africa, Asia and the Pacific, China, Eastern and Western Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and the Soviet Union. The Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports has been the United States' principal record of political and historical open source intelligence for nearly 70 years. The original mission of the FBIS was to monitor, record, transcribe and translate intercepted radio broadcasts from foreign governments, official news services, and clandestine broadcasts from occupied territories. Translated into English from more than 50 languages — from Arabic to Swahili — these comprehensive media reports from around the globe include news, interviews, speeches and editorial commentary.
