CIA Wins 2006 “Rosemary Award” for Worst Freedom of Information Performance by a Federal Agency

Washington D.C., 13 March 2006 – The Central Intelligence Agency has won the second annual Rosemary Award, recognizing the worst performance by a federal agency in complying with the Freedom of Information Act.
