Brief PIDB UpdateTweet
November 13, 2006
Earlier today I attended the first half of the Public Interest Declassification Board's eighth meeting. The Board is still waiting for the White House to give it a green light to review two Senate intelligence committee reports on prewar Iraq intelligence. Also, the National Archives is beginning to review the 9/11 Commission's unclassified records (which are sensitive due to a number of reasons; one reason cited was privacy), yet has not begun on the classified records which make up about three-fourths of the total. The Archives plan on making available the reviewed unclassified records in 2009.
