Loaded Orygun files FOIA request on the Gordon Smith fish-kill


Over at Loaded Orygun, Torrid Joe is wondering what role Gordon Smith played in the Rove/Cheney decision to divert water and kill salmon in 2002:

As of today I have filed five Freedom of Information Act requests with various agencies of the federal government, asking each for their communications received by or sent to Senator Gordon Smith between February 2001 and March 2002. The intent is to discover the extent of Smith's active role in the decisions leading to the worst adult salmon fish kill in recorded Western history.

Read the rest. Discuss over there.
