NEW PRIORITIZATION CATEGORY: Topics Older Than 25 Years

by administrator (http://blogs.archives.gov/transformingclassification/?author=3) on December 2, 2013




We have already received many comments from our followers about what topics you would like to see declassified. Today, we present you with anew list of topics OLDER than 25 years.
View the List Here: Older Than 25 Years (http://blogs.archives.gov/transformingclassification/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Older-Than-25-Years-Old-2.pdf)
Like our first category of topics 25 years old and younger, this list of older topics captures what we heard from Agency declassifiers, experts from the Presidential Libraries and the requester community. The topics are listed in alphabetical order, not by ranking.
All lists will remain active for comment while the blog is live. Please continue to make comments on this new list and also any other topics you think are important for prioritization.
Your comments will be posted as soon as possible. Please review our blog’s Comment and Posting Policy (http://blogs.archives.gov/transformingclassification/?page_id=19) for more details. Thank you for your continued interest and participation.

The most frequently mentioned topic for declassification on this blog has been the assassination of President Kennedy, yet I see it is missing from your list. This topic has also been the most frequently requested declassification effort at the three public forums conducted by the Archives since 2009, and other public input solicitations by the NDC. An example of why this topic should be prioritized is a report on JFKFacts.org today that a leading anti-Castro militant has recently stated that he observed his CIA handler meeting with Lee Harvey Oswald in September 1963. The Archives holds in its JFK collection over 600 pages of classified records related to this CIA officer. Please respect the public interest in the JFK assassination and prioritize these records for declassification.
