JIMC... it's always the same thing with you: Democrats v. Republicans. Doesn't matter where documents are. If they're classified FOIA can't get them. I believe the issue here is that the JD is saying ALL executive branch documents (classified or otherwise) are immune from FOIA requests. That essentially puts the executive branch outside of the rest of government. It was never designed nor intended to be that way. It's not right. I don't care whose Koolaide you drink.
