NSA to Gays: Don't Ask, 'Coz We Won't Tell
Abandon hope, all ye who submit FOIA requests to the NSA:
The National Security Agency has responded to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network by saying it will "continue to neither confirm nor deny the existence or non-existence" of information obtained via surveillance of gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender organizations, PageOneQ has learned.
This is even better than the standard response to a FOIA request: "Sure there are documents, but you can't have them." In essence, the NSA is saying: "We can't even tell you if such documents exist."
But don't interpret this response as a slight of the gay community. The NSA blows off everyone, without regard to sexual orientation.
