US News: Secrecy Under Scrutiny

03.13.06 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

The latest issue of U.S. News and World Report (March 20) features an interview with me on the subject of government secrecy.

It is part of the observance of Sunshine Week, which is a nationwide effort to focus public attention on the virtues of open government.

My not-so-smiling face can also be seen in light and shadow cast by window blinds (“It’s not cliche,” the photographer explained, “it’s classic.”).

See “Secrecy Under Scrutiny” by David E. Kaplan, U.S. News and World Report, March 20, 2006.

A sidebar takes a look at Freedom of Information Act policy. See “Finding out what Uncle Sam has on you” also by David E. Kaplan.
