Border security reports leaked

posted by:Valerie Steeves // 04:36 PM // January 22, 2005 // Surveillance and social sorting

An insecure link on the US Energy Department's website provided access to border security reports on various people denied entry into the US from Canada because they're on the Tipoff watch list. Tipoff contains the names of more than 100,000 "terrorist risks". cryptome.org published a mirror before the US government severed the link, so you can still read the reports at http://cryptome.org/hsomb/hsomb.htm . Interesting reading, especially if you're looking for evidence of possible discrimination on the basis of ethnicity/religion.
