During the latter part of the Clinton Administration there was a
declassification review that had been ordered on the many
documents that the Air Force had, but it was very difficult to
coordinate in a uniform manner and ran very slowly.

I spoke with one of those in charge of that effort and he said
that it was nearly impossible to get everyone to look at the
documents in the same objective way, and where thousands should
have been dealt with, only a few hundred were processed in the
same amount of time.

We are, indeed, talking about hundreds of thousands of boxes of
old documents at Air Force storage facilities all across the US.

The Library of Congress admits that they are far behind in
getting documents declassified, and some of those apparently
stretch back to the Civil War.

All this being said, the declassification effort has ground to a
halt as the US deals with War and budget issues.

Now I suppose it would interesting if the Tea Party could be
convinced that this is needed to get a clear view of our
Government, but that's going to be a tough hill to climb.

Meanwhile, you ask for citizens to take on their employer at a
time when there are few jobs to find, even if you haven't been
blacklisted.

But in the end, I suspect secrets won't be revealed until those
that hold them wish it.
