EFF’s FOIA Litigation for Accountable Government (FLAG) Project aims to expose the government’s expanding use of new technologies that invade Americans’ privacy. Through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, the project helps to protect individual liberties and hold the government accountable.
National security and law enforcement demand some level of government secrecy, but too much secrecy enables abuses of power. The Justice Department’s cell phone tracking without probable cause, the NSA’s illegal spying program, and other recent privacy-invasive initiatives make this clear.
