The Air Force released previously Secret and Top Secret histories to the National Security Archive in response to Freedom of Information Act requests that go back to the 1980s and 90srecords, and resulted in a lawsuit resolved in 2004. The documents show, among many other things, that President Eisenhower directed the Air Force to modify a plan that called for use of atomic weapons against China during the Taiwan Strait crisis in 1958.
