Tom Devine, '80, Director of the UDC Law Whistleblower Protection Clinic and Legal Director at the Government Accountability Project was quoted in Slate Magazine on the subject of White House Non-Disclosure Agreements.

The article reads in pertinent part:

Tom Devine—the legal director at the Government Accountability Project who helped craft the compromise language in the early 1990s—told me that his group essentially won a definition of classification that wasn’t as broad as Reagan first sought it to be. “The information has to be specifically designated ‘marked as classified’ … or needs to be for national security purposes,” Devine told me. “You’re entitled to notice” that something is classified, he added. Even under Reagan’s since-disregarded and overly broad definition, “classifiable” information ostensibly had to have something to do with national security, Devine said. “In principle there was that limitation to it,” he told me.
