Can feds read Pentagon Papers?
Tuesday - 1/18/2011, 3:01pm EST
The simple answer is yes, according to the National Security Archive blog. The blog is not part of the National Security Agency.
The Pentagon Papers are still considered classified. Since they are still top secret, the federal government's recent pronouncement -- that "unauthorized disclosures of classified documents do not alter the documents' classified status or automatically result in declassification of the documents -- the documents are off limits to feds."
Unredacted reports, if this standard holds true, government employees should not be allowed to read (or reference, or cite) the Pentagon papers either.
