That is why the wise join the cryptome list....If GCHQ can share information with the NSA and vikki verki to which their native populations are not privy...then so can cryptome...

the uk has similar legislation but it is worded in such a manner as to be useless to anyone who would try to apply it.

one trick that our wonderful government uses in order to hide stuff from public gaze is to put operational work in the hands of a "private enterprise" which exempts disclosure under the legislation on the rather suprious grounds of"commercial sensitivity"

with regards to face book you can safely ignore their request to"supply your real name"

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

        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
