Six months after 9/11, the National Archives and Records Administration entered into a secret agreement to seal previously public Pentagon and CIA records and keep the reclassification secret so that researchers would not notice or complain. A researcher discovered earlier this year that some records he had previously viewed were missing. Both the Associated Press and the National Security Archive had filed FOIA requests that resulted in NARA releasing the Memorandum of Understanding it had with intelligence agencies and then posting the document on its website.
