FOIA – It’s Your Friend

FOIA, or the Freedom of Information Act, gives researches access to declassified U.S. documents from foreign policy to domestic events. These documents serve as primary accounts of the policy and decision making process of American officials. These memorandums, photographs, and estimates are declassified often on a ten-year basis, leading to new perspectives on events.
