                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United State of 
                America, it is hereby ordered:

                order are hereby declassified.

                Sec. 2. The Archivist of the United States shall take 
                such actions as are necessary to make such records 
                available for public research no later than 30 days 
                from the date of this Order, except to the extent that 
                the head of an affected agency and the Archivist have 
                determined that specific information within such 
                records must be protected from disclosure pursuant to 
                an authorized exemption to the Freedom of Information 
                Act, 5 U.S.C. 552, other than the exemption that 
                pertains to national security information.

                Sec. 3. Nothing contained in this order shall create 
                any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, 
                enforceable by any party against the United States, its 
                agencies or instrumentalities, its officers or 
                employees, or any other person.
