New Fed FOIA database...

Now THIS is a great idea...Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and a coalition of other Washington watchdogs have unveiled a new database of FOIA documents that citizens can access.

Why deal with the government middlemen?

There is lots of “good stuff ” on the database already: Hurricane Katrina; global warming; Neil Bush; Jack Abramoff; secret service records.

The documents were obtained by CREW, Project on Government Oversight, Public Citizen, Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Sunlight Foundation -- all NFOIC allies.
