We'll Sing In The Sunshine
Defense Tech is reporting that the Associated Press (AP) and others have launched Sunshine Week, a seven-day celebration highlighting the dangers of government secrecy, and the steps people can take to get their data back. A new AP study shows that fewer and fewer Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests are being honored by Washington. The report's summary includes: "At the CIA, just 12 percent of the FOIA requests processed were granted in total in 2004, down from 44 percent in 1998. The FBI gave people asking for records everything they asked for just 1 percent of the time in 2004, compared to 5 percent in 1998." File a FOIA request of your own here.
