    but 4B(6)b(3) provides for this new exemption - the one you are complaining about:
    (3) specifically exempted from disclosure by statute (other than section 552b of this title), provided that such statute (A) requires that the matters be withheld from the public in such a manner as to leave no discretion on the issue, or (B) establishes particular criteria for withholding or refers to particular types of matters to be withheld;
    there was not previously a specific exemption
    the FOIA officer at SEC would have had to document the legal basis for refusing to make such disclosures at every instance such inappropriate disclosures would have been requested under the FOIA provisions
    now that is not required because of a legitimate blanket exemption
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Dude. You're making my case for me.

    I said why. I see no reason to state it again; it was clear the first time.

    If you think it's fine and dandy that the SEC is nearly entirely exempt from accountability through the FOIA, far beyond what you claim is your concern, so be it. If that kind of immunity from public inquiry is the kind of government you want, then that's your take. I do not agree, and will not agree.
