The over-classification of information by government officials has lead to millions of dollars in profits for corporate America, and the cover up of numerous crimes against the people of the U.S. You will notice I did not include the government as they are in my personal opinion, complicent. The current process for declassification and review of classification practices goes to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). I have had a request for a review in for over five years. I guess that process is not real functional.

U.S. Reclassifies Many Documents in Secret Review

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20 — In a seven-year-old secret program at the National Archives, intelligence agencies have been removing from public access thousands of historical documents that were available for years, including some already published by the State Department and others photocopied years ago by private historians.

The restoration of classified status to more than 55,000 previously declassified pages began in 1999, when the Central Intelligence Agency and five other agencies objected to what they saw as a hasty release of sensitive information after a 1995 declassification order signed by President Bill Clinton. It accelerated after the Bush administration took office and especially after the 2001 terrorist attacks, according to archives records.

America is in TROUBLE.
this will make headway.

As the worst leakers are lawmakers, one doubts that this will make headway.

This has relevance in the UK as Craig Murray has released documents which are clearly in technical breach of the UK Official Secrets Act and they have been widely mirrored over the web ... some 400 sites it is claimed, worldwide.
