Go FOIA Yourself

Leave a comment

Listening to the radio in the car this weekend, I heard an "On the Media" segment with host Bob Garfield interviewing OTM producer Sarah AbdurrahmanIn about her recent attempts to find out what sorts of information the U.S. government has collected about her.  She explains how she sent out personal Freedom of Information Act Requests to numerous government agencies.  After hearing this segment, I've decided to do the same.

Think the FBI, Secret Service, or other federal agencies haven't collected any information about you?  You may be surprised.  Listen to Sarah's story and you, too, may decide to write in to find out what the government's files say about you.  I've just done it.  It's easy.  As Sarah explains, one way to do it easily is to start here at Get My FBI File.
