Today’s NY Times leads with “U.S. Reclassifies Many Documents in Secret Review“:

The restoration of classified status to more than 55,000 previously declassified pages began in 1999, when the Central Intelligence Agency and five other agencies objected to what they saw as a hasty release of sensitive information after a 1995 declassification order signed by President Bill Clinton. It accelerated after the Bush administration took office and especially after the 2001 terrorist attacks, according to archives records.

My personal favorite? According to one recently reclassified document, on October 12, 1950, the CIA reported that “a full-scale Chinese intervention in Korea was a ‘possibility’ but not ‘probable’ in 1950. 15 days later 300,000 Chinese troops crossed into Korea.
