In a major victory in one of EFF's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits, the Justice Department conceded yesterday that it will release hundreds of pages of documents, including FISA court opinions, related to the government’s secret interpretation of Section 215 of the Patriot Act, the law the NSA has relied upon for years to mass collect the phone records of millions of innocent Americans.

I did a search and couldn't see a thread. I just got the link to the article from an email from EFF, so I hope there is no thread about this already.

Some detractors will dismiss this as "its not going to tell us anything we didnt already know", well when it comes to holding these agencies accountable its not what you know but what you can prove. Hopefully there will be some decent evidence here to make some heads roll.
