We’ve already started scouring newly-released documents relating to the misuse of National Security Letters to collect Americans’ private information.

A related request, from Ryan Single over at 27B-6, is to “Help Wired News Make Sense of FBI Computer Crime Stats.”
Really, there hasn’t been such a good opportunity to uncover illegal activity by Uncle Sam the Church Committee hearings. It’s like shootin’ fish in a barrel.
Go take a look.
