"Despite the theoretical difficulties in any model of the deception process, there is, indeed, a process or cycle, from concept through creation to reaction, that focuses on an effective illusion that largely simulates reality or dissemulates it for the planner's purpose.

The documents being sought "were produced between 1917 and 1930. Attorneys representing the CIA … argued that though secret ink may seem an unsophisticated espionage technique compared to 21st-century encryption, it could nonetheless be valuable to America's foes."
