AP Study of Open Gov't In Other Countries
A very interesting Associated Press piece on how other countries approach open government.
If you think the US is better than other countries, consider this from the article. When the AP made the same records request to various countries:
"Guatemala sent all documents in 10 days, and Turkey in seven. By comparison, Canada asked for a 200-day extension, and the FBI in the United States responded six months late with a single sheet with four dates, two words and a large blanked section."
