Cables and More Released through FOIA
As I post cables and other material from my own service abroad, I also wish to note that the US National Archives (NARA) posts old diplomatic cables, as mandated by US law for automatic declassification of most material after 25 years. NARA is 11 years behind (because the US Congress shorts its budget and no one seems to complain). The State Department FOIA office posts material as well – including Hillary email – and also allows requests online.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
