Documents reveal hidden EU cooperation with US

Taken from the Statewatch website:

"The EU and the US are preventing the full extent of their cooperation on the "war on terrorism" from being revealed, leaked documents seen by the Guardian show...After a four-year struggle for information, Statewatch was provided with copies of 35 agendas of meetings between EU and US officials; 458 agenda items were deleted.Last month it applied for four more. They were refused on the grounds that they could "prejudice the relations between the EU and the United States" or "considerably hamper the efforts taken internationally to prevent terrorist acts" "
