Tom Blanton, director of the National Security Archive, talks to host Melissa Block about the release of secret documents concerning the Berlin Wall.

Bush administration wanted it to come down, while the Soviets and the Czechs were thinking of tearing it down themselves to relieve the refugee problem.
