of her meeting with Saddam Hussein which appeared in the New York Times.
As to document six, the Court finds that while this document does relate to foreign affairs in a general sense, to construe any document that has anything to do with foreign affairs as exempt from FOIA would be to go well beyond the scope of Exemption One. The information in this document was publicly acknowledged, and the Court finds that the government has waived Exemption One with respect to it. The defendant has not satisfactorily demonstrated that the different context in which this information appears impacts the national security. Neither does the Court find that Exemption Five is appropriate for this document. Rather, it appears to the Court that the information contained in document six is factual and does not reflect upon the agency's deliberative process. See Skelton, 678 F.2d at 38-39.
Regarding document seven, the Court makes the same findings that it has made for document six, above. However, for document seven the Court has some reservations, and believes that the agency may need to make some redactions before releasing it. Further, while the Court is not convinced that Exemption One was properly invoked, it would consider further justifications from the agency on that issue if, after reviewing the document again, the agency still believes that withholding document seven is appropriate.
Accordingly, it is, by the Court, this 14th day of January, 1992,
ORDERED that the defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment shall be, and hereby is, GRANTED in part and DENIED in part; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that with respect to all documents at issue, with the exception of documents numbered six and seven, the defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment shall be, and hereby is, GRANTED; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that with respect to document six, the defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment shall be, and hereby is, DENIED, and the defendant is hereby directed to release the document to the plaintiff pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act no later than January 31, 1992; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that with respect to document seven, the defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment shall be, and hereby is, DENIED, and the defendant is hereby directed to review this document once more. Unless the defendant presents further justifications to the Court as to why this document should be withheld under Exemption One before January 31, 1992, it must make any redactions it deems essential, proper and consistent with this Order under Exemptions One and Five, and release this document to the defendant on that date.
