    And in the interest of accuracy, I must add:
    First, as to classification,  the Library of Congress reports that there
    is a "classified" portion to FBIS.  On a personal note, I received daily
    classified--not just restricted to government use--FBIS-collected data
    over a several month period in 1988.
    Second, no fees are charged for accessing FBIS files stored in libraries
    which are government documents repositories.  I used FBIS unclassified
    daily LATAM reports for my dissertation data.  I still use this data
    base on a regular basis.
