The Freedom of Information Act has helped countless journalists, government watchdogs and individual Americans obtain information about how their government operates. The Sunshine in Government Initiative, a coalition of media groups that promotes policies to help ensure the government is accessible, accountable and open, has collected hundreds of these stories in its The FOIA Files. Examples range from 122 levees across the U.S. in danger of failing to the Pentagon ignoring a tip alleging fraud costing as much as $200 million. (9/25/07)
