I have a question about freedom of information. Im not sure how the programs differ from country to country, but I would like to ask a general
question to anyone who thinks they know.
Correct me if I am wrong at anytime.
You can request information and still be denied if they claim that the info could be a security threat.
Basically top secret stuff is a no go.
My real question is this. How does the whole process go?
Is there a "raincheck" system as I call it?
Say I request info about oh say, a terrorist act in the states the day, or the minute I hear about it. Perhaps at the time infomation is not
classified, but later, days, hours etc, the issue could be deemed classified.
If I request information about it sooner does that mean I will get different information.
Its just something Ive wondered about.
I guess if this were the case you would have to know exacttly what you want.
Ive never requested anything so im not sure. Hopefully people will understand what I asked in this thread.
