Scientists group forces Marines, Army to put public records back online
By David Cuillier
The Federation of American Scientists forced through a Freedom of Information Act request the U.S. Marine Corps to restore public access to unclassified documents on its Web site (see FAS info). Similar pressure by FAS pressured the Army to restore public records on its Web site. This group of scientists does an outstanding job of keeping information public for the good of information sharing and knowledge acquisition. Good job!
