The Government Attic and Other Government Information

What do you get when you start sending FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests to various federal agencies? The Government Attic. With information ranging from a collection of U.S. Supreme Court Legal Maxims compiled by the Department of Justice to a list of CIA Inspector General completed investigations to a report about the use of iPads by the Department of Transportation, the Government Attic is a great way to spend a few hours seeing what administrative agencies do.

Open CRS also provides insight into the working of the government; this site provides reports from the Congressional Research Service received through FOIA requests.

Similarly intriguing information can be found at the GAO (Government Accountability Office) website section on Topics in the News.
