The Congressional Research Service delivers its reports to members of Congress but not to the public through a web page. The Federation of American Scientists does a good job of posting many CRS reports on its website. National security related CRS reports can be found at www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec.index.html. Or see the State Departmentís collection at http://fpc.state.gov/c18193.htm.
