Do you know what FOIA is? No? Don’t be alarmed, most Americans don’t. It is better known as the Freedom of Information Act (introduced by Sen. Edward V. Long in 1965 and signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1966), and is most often used by Americans looking for answers into the deep mysteries of government activity.
You can use it yourself to discover what organizations like the National Security Agency or the Federal Bureau of Investigation have on your file. Amazingly, FIOA can be used by you to get whatever files that the NSA or FBI or any other three letter agency has on you.
Requesting FBI Records Note: The FBI FOIA Document Processing System (FDPS) is presently undergoing a scheduled upgrade. Although new requests are still being accepted, there may be some delay. This upgrade will enhance our ability to process the large volume of requests made to the FBI’s FOIA program. If you need further assistance, please contact our public information officer by telephone at (540) 868-4593 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We apologize for any inconvenience.
