    Freedom of Information Act can release after certain amount of years but they can still black out anything that they deem to be a breach of national security. You have to file a petition in order to get the information you want and you need to know exactly what to ask for to get it too. They have purposely made it difficult to get but it can be done. I am not sure if the amount of years is 7 years or 10 years.
