At the Project on Government Secrecy in Washington,
Steven Aftergood makes his living as a watchdog for the
public, rooting out "excessive government secrecy" and promoting the
free flow of ideas.


But in the aftermath of the World Trade Center massacre, the
publisher of Secrecy News has pulled from its own Web site more
than 200 pages of previously posted information out of concern that
terrorists might find them useful.

Partly in response to this article, the Electronic Frontier Foundation
has posted a page detailing the chilling effects of responses to
terrorism, including websites shut down in the wake of the
attacks, on our website at http://www.eff.org/sc/antiterrorism_chill.html

If it is 2001, with the test of time so thorough, and the problem still exists, might it be that the government, the watchdogs and the media reporting the problem, each hold the same controlling contradiction?
