I guess that it's at least a relief to know that if you keep after these folks long enough, they will release material about 20-year-old projects. Having had a security clearance myself, I understand the need to know aspects of this sort of stuff, but still, when there is nothing that will compromise security, it's better to get it out than to have the paranoids running around feeling that you are hiding something."
