FOI request to investigate government spying, ACLU says

Student anti-war groups tagged by government tracking database

CALIFORNIA When California students protested military recruiters last year, they never expected to end up on a terrorist watch list. Now they want to know why.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California filed a Freedom of Information Act request last week on behalf of two student groups from California universities asking for all records and information kept on the groups by several government agencies, including the Department of Defense.
