Hailed by Glenn Beck as a “Watchdog,” bestselling author and legal expert Christopher Horner explains how every citizen can use the Freedom of Information Act to find out what our government is up to.
Every American has a right (and need!) to know what his or her government is doing, and Christopher C. Horner—legal expert, D.C. conservative think tank veteran, and active Freedom of Information Act proponent—breaks it all down in The Liberal War on Transparency.
Horner delivers background on how the Freedom of Information Act was set up, what its purpose is, and what the courts have said about it. But most importantly, he shows how to find information using the “tradecraft” method (how to track down the names and email addresses of people involved in a questionable government acts despite their adeptness at using code names to remain undetected, etc.). He reveals our administration’s secret tactics and meetings, catches the White House “pulling an Abramoff” and hiding its talks with the UN on offsite servers, and much more.
Fascinating, timely, and informative, this is a comprehensive and practical guide on the FOIA and how it affects each and every citizen.
