One thought on “National Declassification Center Releases its Sixth Bi-annual Progress Report”
The special targeted review of the Katyn Forrest records is commendable in that it involved an inter-agency effort to complete the review. This special collection not only added significant new information to the historical record, it was clearly on a topic of interest to many people. This project is in accordance with one of our earlier recommendations to pritoritze records for declassifiction that demonstrate events and topics of historical significance.
