62808963 story The Department of Homeland Security Needs Its Own Edward Snowden 190 Posted by Soulskill on Wednesday July 23, 2014 @02:07PM from the any-volunteers? dept. blottsie writes: Out of all the U.S. government agencies, the Department of Homeland Security is one of the least transparent. As such, the number of Freedom of Information Act requests it receives have doubled since 2008. But the DHS has only become more adamant about blocking FOIA requests over the years. The problem has become so severe that nothing short of an Edward Snowden-style leak may be needed to increase transparency at the DHS.
