Age of missing information

The Age of Missing Information: The Bush administration’s campaign against openness. Slate, March 17, 2005. By Steven Aftergood.

Steven Aftergood knows about government information. After all, he’s the director of the American Federation of Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy. Aftergood’s article deals with the rapid and agressive control of unclassified government information since 2001. It gives several good examples of our government being overzealous with our information.

Listen to Aftergood’s interview on NPR’s Day to Day.
