I'll Make It Easy FOIA


This has been up for a few weeks, but I only just noticed it: The ACLU has set up a form that allows you to submit a Freedom of Information Act request to determine whether JetBlue (assuming you've flown JetBlue) passed your personal information to federal contractors working on the CAPPS II passenger screening system. This strikes me as a cool idea, and I'd like to see it expanded. Granted, it's not all that difficult to make a FOIA request now, but it'd be handy to have a standardized set of requests that could be quickly and automatically submitted online.
