Let Freedom Ring!

Ian Lamont writes "The Electronic Frontier Foundation and the National
Security Archive are praising President Obama's executive orders to
make the federal government more open
. Yesterday, Obama issued two memos
and one executive order instructing government agencies to err on the
side of making information public and not to look for reasons to legally
withhold it. The moves are expected to make it easier for people to file
Freedom of Information Act requests, and should also boost the amount of
information that agencies place on their websites. The general counsel
for the National Security Archive (an NGO that publishes declassified
documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act) even predicts
that agencies will use blogs to share information. Obama's directives
reverse a 2001 memo from former US Attorney General John Ashcroft
instructing federal agencies to generally withhold information from
citizens filing FOIA requests."
