1970: The UK negotiates with terrorists and capitulates. Apparently in the UK there's a 30-year rule where certain documents are revealed after said delay. They've just released documents about the "Black September" hijackings in 1970.

Say what you will of Britain's inconsistent free speech protections, that's a damned good rule.

Here, stuff can stay secret forever at the whim of some bureaucrat.
