Sorry guys I think this one is pretty vague really. Agencies are only "encouraged" to release, and DOJ will defend if the agency determines the info. should be withheld. For this to have any real teeth, DOJ should evaluate the case independently of the agency involved, and decide whether it should defend. Otherwise, this is just more window dressing. Moreover, the agencies can still hide behind statutory restrictions, since most classified material is protected by statute.

Then if change must be implemented, so be it!
