" EPIC filed suit ( http://epic.org/priv...b_complaint.pdf - you should really read that - Pete) in federal court yesterday against the Department of Justice for reports of possible misconduct submitted by the FBI to the Intelligence Oversight Board. EPIC is also seeking documents from the Attorney General about possible misconduct within the intelligence community. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, the head of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, has been assigned to the case. EPIC has already obtained about twenty reports to the Intelligence Oversight Board through another Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that raise questions about compliance with federal law. For more information, see EPIC's Patriot Act FOIA page ( http://epic.org/priv...sapatriot/foia/ - which is another good one to read if you're not already familiar with the fact that documented 'patriot' act abuses are already out there - Pete ). (Jan. 11) "
Undoubtedly the government will continueto stonewall on actually producing these reports, because they haven't gotten their way quite yet with the 'patriot' act re-authorization. Stay tuned. Pete
