At last, America is undoing legislation that GW Bush introduced back in 2001 to protect himself and past presidents from exposure by allowing them to keep their papers secret for ever.

It was a scar on the landscape of freedom. It was a blot on democratic leadership and has been defeated by the House of Representatives by a veto busting 333-93 margin. Bipartisan support ensures that freedom can now return to America.

There is a lot more to be undone.
