The copies of the requested documents that GAO received were so heavily redacted that they did not provide any useful information. GAO believes the process used by State and DOD threatens its independent access to records as well as the quality and validity of the study. GAO also believes that the existing process of allowing federal agencies to collect the relevant documents and edit their contents before releasing them to GAO is unacceptable and must change."
