Hopefully it will be before 2045. That's when Great Britian will release all the info they have on Hess.

[quote="David Thompson"]Waffen -- A lot of the material is currently available, but most folks don't know what's out there, where it is or how to get it. I'm trying to post some finding aids, and plan to post more. Here's some links which may help get you started:

http://foia.fbi.gov/foiaindex.htm

Many thanks for the above link, I am downloading FBI files on Winston Churchill as we speak, any Idea how long these FBI files have been declassified?

war_dog2 -- No, I don't know how long those Churchill files have been declassified, but they've been on the FBI FOIA website for a couple of years. There are some additional FBI FOIA files at:

http://www.geocities.com/gfileusa/

but that site is currently being remodeled.

I posted some additional finding aids on the Holocaust and War Crimes part of the forum since my last post.
