EFF Finds Evidence Of Over 40,000 Intelligence Violations By The FBI Since 9/11
from the yes,-40,000 dept
So, once again, it seems unlikely that this story will get much attention, but the EFF has, via a series of Freedom of Information Act requests, determined that the FBI may have committed over 40,000 intelligence violations since 9/11, 2001.
On top of that, the research uncovered evidence of the FBI "lying in declarations to courts, using improper evidence to obtain grand jury subpoenas, and accessing password-protected files without a warrant." And yet, why aren't we hearing much about this? Why aren't there stories everywhere covering this massive abuse by the government? Instead, we just get Congress rubber stamping a renewal of the Patriot Act, without even taking into consideration what's happening.
