"The Bush administration last night issued an order delaying the release of millions of government documents and giving the government new powers to reclassify information."
"The order, rewriting a Clinton administration directive, allows the government to delay until the end of 2006 the release of documents that otherwise would have been out by April 17 under a program of automatic declassification after 25 years. The government now has more discretion to keep information classified indefinitely if it falls within a broad definition of national security." (from The Washington Post)
