Where oh where did that govt document go?

Has anyone got a digital copy of the Overseas Base Closing Commission report that was released a couple of weeks ago? It seems the Secretary of Defense didn’t like it so he had it pulled from the Internet. I’d be willing to trade for the May 3, 2005 GAO Report on Military Base Closures. Heck, I’ll give you the report up front! If you have a digital copy, please send it to admin@freegovinfo.info“>admin at FreeGovInfo dot info.

  1. Thanks to everyone who responded to my email on govdoc-l! The full 262-page report including all appendices is available at the Project on Government Secrecy (PDF file). I think as more documents go online only, we will have to be more diligent in collecting them on local servers to prevent this scenario from happening.
