EFF Adds Tens of Thousands of Pages to Government Document Archive

From an EFF Blog Post:

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has added thousands of never-before-seen records to its online collection of documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The treasure trove of government records, now up to date and posted on our website in its entirety, is the result of almost 200 FOIA requests and over a dozen lawsuits.

The document collection now includes for the first time:

+ documents detailing the Federal Communications Commission's claimed authority to conduct warrantless searches of private residences;

+ tens of thousands of pages of records describing the FBI's misuse of its authority to issue National Security Letters;

+ a summary of complaints to the of Homeland Security's Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP);

+ a description of the Department of Homeland Security's role in the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative;

+ a set of government contracts with Google and other technology firms for the digitization of government files;

+ documents related to the FBI's capacity to conduct surveillance on Skype, the internet telephony protocol; and

+ copies of the National Science Foundation's grant awards for wireless microelectromechanical sensor technology, so-called "smart dust."

All of these documents, along with the rest of EFF's FOIA repository, can be accessed directly or searched using EFF's FOIA document search tool.
