Here's your proof
Sec. 1.8. Classification Prohibitions and Limitations.
(a) In no case shall information be classified in order to:
(1) conceal violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error;
(2) prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency;
(3) restrain competition; or
(4) prevent or delay the release of information that does not require protection in the interest of national security.
(b) Basic scientific research information not clearly related to the national security may not be classified.
(c) Information may not be reclassified after it has been declassified and released to the public under proper authority.
(d) Information that has not previously been disclosed to the public under proper authority may be classified or reclassified after an agency has
received a request for it under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) or the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), or the mandatory review
provisions of section 3.6 of this order only if such classification meets the requirements of this order and is accomplished on a document-by-document
basis with the personal participation or under the direction of the agency head, the deputy agency head, or the senior agency official designated
under section 5.6 of this order. This provision does not apply to classified information contained in records that are more than 25 years old and have
been determined to have permanent historical value under title 44, United States Code.
(e) Compilations of items of information which are individually unclassified may be classified if the compiled information reveals an additional
association or relationship that:
(1) meets the standards for classification under this order; and
(2) is not otherwise revealed in the individual items of information. As used in this order, “compilation” means an aggregation of
pre-existing unclassified items of information.
I wanted to post this without having to open a new thread. Thanks for the opportunity.
While reading the "cablegate" stuff, I discovered how unconstitutional Presidential Executive Orders appear to me in my minds eye.
I figure the purpose of wikileaks is to keep our attention tied-up while shady dealings are going-down behind closed doors.
It seems that if we find anything suitable, it's because we happen to open the right document. If wikileaks is so this and that techy, one would think
of compiling a search term generator to aid in the digging up of any dirt?
