Knowledge is power

According to Secrecy News:
The Central Intelligence Agency has been unilaterally removing records from public collections in the National Archives, according to the minutes of a September 2004 meeting of the State Department Historical Advisory Committee that were approved for release this week.

. . .

"CIA reviewers... claimed the right to remove documents from the open files that, in their view, had never been 'properly declassified.'"
The advisory committee minutes are here.

And so progresses the inexorable tide of criminal behavior that is washing away our rights. Does it seem to anyone else like someone has turned up the temperature under the pot of water where we citizen frogs are boiling to death? I can't remember a time this bad.
