Ok, I promise I'll try not to write too much more on this topic, as it does seem to be dominating lately. However, according to a New York Times article, it seems that 1/3 of the items that were withdrawn and reclassified since 1999 from the National Archives in the Staes did not contain sensative material. The remaining 2/3 could technically be justified but often held old secrets that are known. It begs the question, why were they withdrawn then? I have no answer for you.
