NPR's Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg has the first of a two-part series on the Bush administration's attempts to withhold information from the public. Although several Freedom of Information Act requests should have forced the government to release documents in recent years, the administration is urging federal departments to consider possible future ramifications. This suggestion has led many offices to deny all requests.
