FAS Project on Government Secrecy

The Federation of American Scientists sponsors this project, which works to challenge excessive government secrecy and to promote public oversight. They also publish an email newsletter, the Secrecy News, which provides informal coverage of new developments in secrecy, security and intelligence policies. Recent issues have focused on the recently-defeated "anti-leak" law (informally dubbed the "Official Secrets Act") that would have made even journalists liable for inciting a felony if they obtain classified information from anyone who is not officially authorized to disclose it.
