Hi, this must be my first email after some 2 or 3 years of just joining Cryptome list.
I have read many very interesting discussions here.
So, first of all sorry for my bad english, it's not my motherslanguage.
I really wanna ask what is FOIA .

And a even more stupid question: Facebook keeps asking me to provide a picture of my ID because as the message says : "It looks like you are not using your real name in Facebook". I asked some friends of me and they never seen that in their accounts in Facebook and their names are like John Rambo IV. :D

    Thank you Ryan! I will do that.

It stands for Freedom of Information Act, and entitles US citizens to ask for...and if they are lucky...occasionally get a question about some non-classified activity of a state or public organisation, answered satisfactorily.

    It depends on what you're requesting, really. Generally a good
    tactic is to request something small and precise first, and than
    get information from that to request more records. I'd probably
    request the NSA cryptography suite A in Intellipedia.
