OGIS Director Miriam Nisbet appeared on WAMU radio’s award-winning Kojo Nnamdi show on January 29, 2013, for a discussion titled “Following Through on FOIA: Progress and Pitfalls.” Daniel Metcalfe, Executive Director of the Collaboration on Government Secrecy at American University’s Washington College of Law and Thomas Blanton, Director of the National Security Archive at George Washington University also appeared on the show, along with reporter Michael Pope. The group discussed the challenges faced by federal FOIA processors and offered practical advice for requesters and agencies.
