2,500 pages later EFF finds widespread FBI abuses

After examining some 2,500 pages of documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) the folks at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) have released a report showing widespread violations by the FBI in the years following 9/11.

The report suggests that civil liberty violations are far more widespread that was previously thought.

Evidence of delays of 2.5 years, on average, between the occurrence of a violation and its eventual reporting to the Intelligence Oversight Board

Reports of serious misconduct by FBI agents including lying in declarations to courts, using improper evidence to obtain grand jury subpoenas, and accessing password-protected files without a warrant

Indications that the FBI may have committed upwards of 40,000 possible intelligence violations in the 9 years since 9/11
