National Security Council - Collection Finding Aid


National Security Council - Collection Finding Aid


This collection consists of records regarding public access to National Security Council (NSC) documents. The case of Armstrong v. the Executive Office of the President raised the question of to what extent the records of the NSC are subject to FOIA requests. In response, President Clinton issued a memorandum on March 24, 1994 to National Security Advisor Anthony Lake and NSC Executive Secretary William Itoh stating that regardless of the decision in the Armstrong case the NSC will continue to provide public access to NSC records. The records in this collection contain memoranda and Anthony Lake's declaration in the Armstrong case.
