    Why not classify embarrassing information? That would be illegal, or at least inconsistent with the Executive Order on classfication, which specifically forbids the practice: “In no case shall information be classified in order to . . .

    (2) prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency . . . .” It’s possible to argue that order is not enforced, but it is at least on the books, if I am not mistaken. See http://www.fas.org/sgp/clinton/eo12958.html
