It’s taken eight years and cost $30 million to declassify eight million pages of records on World War II criminals, according to a new government report which adds that “Far too often documents are classified to avoid embarrassment, or, more often still, simply because it is easy to do so without accountability.” The report said that the CIA largely refused to cooperate until two years ago, when the effort was extended because of the CIA’s resistance.
