The CIA has released it's 2008 FOIA Report to the public. I was surprised to see that there were not more FOIA requests. what was not surprising was the amount of requests that were denied.




The agency processed 1,698 requests during the year. (703 requests had been pending at the start of the year, and 1,935 were received during the year. Thus, 940 were left pending at the end of the year). Of those 1,698 processed requests, documents were released in full 237 times. They were denied in full due to FOIA exemptions 388 times. A partial release was granted 532 times. The remaining 541 were full denials for various reasons other than the FOIA exemptions, such as “no records” or “improper FOIA request.”


Here is a link to the report, as well as previous reports.

do you know if there were any really interesting documents released this year?

maybe you could spearhead a movement that makes more requests!

The creator of the Black Vault, John Greenwald Jr. is pretty much the king of the FOIA request. He has a very large collection of FOIA requests on just about everything you can think of. No since in re-inventing the wheel!
