The 'Retricted' classification no longer exists in the US
classified system. It was done away with in 1953 by the
Eisenhower administration. It was the lowest category of
classified information up to that time. Foreign governments
still have such a classifications.

See page 37 of Army Regulation 380-5


which states

4-55 Equivalent U. S. Classification Designations

"Foreign classification designations generally parallel U. S.
classification designations. The exceptions is that many foreign
governments have a forth (lowest) classification designation
called "RESTRICTED." A table of equivalent of foreign and pact
organizations security classifications is contain in section

There are further discussions of the Restricted category of
security information on page 37 and after. Again, it applies to
foreign governments' classified systems.

Restricted Data and Formerly Restricted Data is not related to
the old obsolete security classification RESTRICTED, but
reference to documents contain nuclear data designated by the
old Atomic Energy Act as vital to US interests.

Okay, those who contend that is a Secret Restricted or Top
Secret Restricted (not Secret Restricted Data and Top Secret
Restricted Data) find the relevant paragraph describing it in
Army Regulation 380-5 as cited above.

I look forwards to your answers.
