Protect and Improve the FOIA

This goes to the heart of the American people's right to be informed about what the government is doing. I know off all the bureaucracy involved in requesting information through the Freedom of Information Act because I have requested documents using it. Not only is it extremely slow in responding, but there are so many different labels and sections that just finding the right place to search for the information itself is a search. After that, if the information is available they may or may not release it. They can use national security as an excuse, like they do so often, or just possibly say that it doesn't exist and unless you have some powerful contacts you will never know whether it has been destroyed or not. I know, I tried.
