Justice Department Accused of Keeping Public Records from Being Released

Steve Neavling

President Obama pledged to run a transparent administration that respects public access to records.

But an internal audit of the Justice Department recently found excessive secrecy, according to [2] Slate.

The audit found “persistent misunderstanding and lack of knowledge of certain classification processes.”

For example, a review of documents found that information was marked as secret despite containing no classified information, Slate reported.
