Update to State Department Office of Historian story

You might remember the brouhaha late last year over trouble in the Office of the Historian at the State Department which writes the highly regarded FRUS series or Foreign Relations of the United States. The historians in the office were up in arms over the alleged mismanagement of the office by the then-director Marc Susser. Well now an internal investigation has confirmed the seriousness of the problem and Susser has apparently been removed from the post. Stephen Aftergood at Secrecy News has been following the story and there’s also a report in today’s Washington Post by Walter Pincus.
