Secrecy Bits

From today’s news:

The plaintiffs say many of the volunteers’ records have been destroyed or remain sealed as top secret documents. They also say they were denied medals and other citations they were promised for participating in the experiments.

For a background on MKULTRA activities, see the Church hearings.

Peter Finn, The Washington Post: “The military judge overseeing proceedings against five of the men accused of planning the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks signed an order designed to protect classified information that is so broad it could prevent public scrutiny of the most important trial at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to lawyers and human rights groups.”

On a related note, the National Archives and Records Administration reports directed by  ” Federal Records Act, the Commission has established a general restriction from public access on these records until 2009.”

2009 should be a watershed year for 9/11 researchers.
