From the Electronic Frontier Foundation:

We’ve already started scouring newly-released documents relating to the misuse of National Security Letters to collect Americans’ private information. But don’t let us have all fun — you, too, can dive into the docs and help uncover the truth about the FBI’s abuse of power. All 1138 pages are freely downloadable (with searchable text) from EFF’s website, and we’ll be posting a new batch every month.

This is an excellent project to help out on, just remember:

EFF received these documents as the result of a FOIA request made through our FLAG project. We ask that you please mention EFF if you use these documents in any way. We’re a nonprofit organization, and our funding for this project depends on showing that our work is important and relevant. For more information about these documents or EFF’s FLAG project, please contact EFF Staff Attorney Marcia Hofmann at marcia(at)eff.org.
