New blog: National Security Archive

The National Security Archive at George Washington University announced its new blog today: Unredacted: The National Security Archive, Unedited and Uncensored. The announcement says:

The National Security Archive is pleased to open its virtual doors with a new behind-the-scenes blog, “Unredacted: The National Security Archive, Unedited and Uncensored,”. The Archive’s own experience with thousands of Freedom of Information Act and Mandatory Declassification Review requests provides a wealth of data and fundamental lessons that we hope to share with you.

“Unredacted” will highlight never before publicly seen government documents as part of our regular “Document Friday” series. The blog will feature commentary and analysis from our experts on current news stories, events, ongoing litigation and advocacy efforts, newly-released documents, and other hot topics. We will regularly highlight some of our top document collections — including unpublished collections donated by top journalists and authors — that are available to researchers and the public.

The new blog will also tell you more about the Archive’s global activities, including reports from the field as Archive staff travel to document archives around the world, assist international courts and tribunals with human rights cases, support efforts to enact and implement freedom of information laws in other nations, and attend meetings and conferences with other NGO representatives and high-level government officials.
