Privacy group sues TSA, Justice over airline passenger data

GovExec Article

"A public interest organization has filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Transportation Security Administration and the Justice Department, seeking the immediate release of information about government efforts to collect airline passenger data since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center charges in a complaint filed Wednesday with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia that TSA and the FBI have failed to adequately respond to Freedom of Information Act requests. EPIC is asking the court to compel the agencies to immediately disclose all records related to the use of airline passenger information.

The complaint alleges that TSA has violated statutory time limits in responding to three separate FOIA requests. It says that the FBI has failed to expedite another FOIA request and has wrongfully withheld records."

It shouldn't take lawsuits to make this disgrace of an agency come clean. More proof that the TSA should be disbanded and replaced with private security!
