Transparency Watch: An Advocate At ODNI

According to the Federation of American Scientists, the Office of the Director for National Intelligence has a new inspector general who tends to be an advocate of transparency and a foe of over-classification.  Roslyn Mazer, who chaired a panel on overclassification in the late 1990s and most recently worked at the Justice Department as an internal compliance lawyer, is "beloved of open government advocates," an intel analyst tells me.  So solid is her pedigree that the CIA once went to court over her efforts and lost.
