Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

In the first 20 years of MIM’s existence, we took the easy political road of not teaching about espionage and diplomacy. Lately, we have had many reasons to file under U.S. laws concerning government accountability.

In the United $tates and Britain we have the concept of “FOIA” or “Freedom of Information Act” request.

On this page we provide a timeline for MIM-related FOIAs.

  • On February 21, 2007, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) replied to our request for a FOIA.
  • On December 20, 2009, I filed another request for FOIA with the Defense Intelligence Agency.
  • On December 22, 2009, the DIA replied saying a FOIA was in the works regarding MIM.
  • In March, 2010, I asked for a FOIA from the FBI.
  • On March 24 and March 25, 2010, I asked Eric Holder for a FOIA from the Department of Justice.
  • On April 1, 2010, the FBI prepared an explanation why MIM would not get any FOIA material from the FBI.

    As of May 1, 2010 we had not received any FOIA documents from the federal government. We hope to keep the readers up-to-date on this page.

    This page under construction. Come back for updates.
