the "slippery slope" of torture

| | TrackBacks (0)
Will the government invoke Exemption 7(f) of the Freedom of Information Act to try to withhold the 2004 CIA Inspector General report, that's supposed to be released by the 24th of this month, in the same way it is using FOIA to block the torture photos?

"The argument the government has put forward is unacceptable because it would afford the greatest protection from disclosure to records that depict the worst kind of government misconduct. That is fundamentally inconsistent with FOIA. And it's fundamentally inconsistent with democracy." - ACLU lawyer Amrit Singh
