The Electronic Frontier Foundation and a coalition of government watchdog groups have launched governmentdocs.org. The site consolidates United States government documents produced by Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests from various organizations. The FOIA requires the federal government to disclose documents detailing its activities, when asked.
FOIA requests seek to hold the government accountable for abuse, corruption and unfulfilled promises to citizens. Governmentdocs.org allows visitors to search a database of documents uncovered by watchdog groups. Registered site users may comment on the documents.
