The State Department said they would no longer inform the public how they were operating these overseas libraries in light of their recent attempts at censorship.
President Eisenhower recently vowed to stop using security classifications to keep non-sensitive information from the U.S. public. However, the State Department, shortly after this initiative, announced that the public would no longer be informed of how they were running overseas libraries as part of cold-war strategy. The author excoriates this decision by the State Department as both undemocratic and as going arrogantly against the President's plans.
