Anyone ever get a FOIA document that the FOIA person that marks out things forgot to mark something out?

I've looked a lot of FOIA documents mostly the word before "keyhole" is marked out. I did find one document they forgot to mark the word before "keyhole" and it was on the front page. lol

Anyone know the job title of the person that blacks out the classified pages of FOIA requests? :D

Redaction is what our government calls it so it would be a Redactor.

Thanks. I was thinking I could save the government a lot of money because I'd be willing to be a Redactor for free. :D

I have read recently that some of the older PDF's released that you can read what is blacked out using cut and paste. Anyone try that. :o

I don't know if there's a person with the specific JOB of editing documents. I'm sure it's a process of determining what can be shared and what can't. But I'm sure WHOEVER makes the final decision... isn't someone you can trust.
