Interesting article, really loved this quote regarding the effort to declassify them. Makes ya kinda doubt that they're really declassifying much for FOIA requests! Here's the quote from the article (emphasis mine):


If they couldn’t be declassified, they would have to be sent to the U.S. Air Force, which originally classified them, or destroyed. So, Richards tracked down the right people in the Air Force and asked them to declassify the documents so that they could by preserved for posterity.

“They had the bureaucratic problem that there was no obvious indication on how to do it,” Richards said. “They were very helpful, but it took a while.”
