Assignment 7B

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government. The American agency that administers the work proposed in FOIA is an independent non-governmental research institute and a library located at The George Washington University also called the Archive. They also collect information through other laws too like the freedom of information act and more. Yes this act definitely benefits citizens in many ways.  For example it provides us with documents that have not been released. This can help us make decisions for the U.S and also help us keep track of historical records. It keeps us up to date with current events like the Cuban missile crisis etc. Also we get to know about others countries outside the U.S and know what their plans for the U.S are.
