35 million secret pages to be released

The New York Times writes about the 25-year rule, which forces the NSA and other federal agencies to release classified information after 25 years. Many become available at the end of the month. It reports:

"The National Security Agency, the eavesdropping and code-breaking agency, has released 35 million pages, including an extensive collection on the Gulf of Tonkin incident that led to the escalation of the Vietnam War. The agency plans a major release early next year on the Israeli attack on the Liberty, an American eavesdropping ship, in 1967."
