The Constitution Project

Recently, The Constitution Project (TCP) started the bipartisan Task Force on Detainee Treatment. The purpose of TCP is to "bring the American people a comprehensive understanding of what is known and what may still be unknown about the past and current treatment of detainees by the U.S. government, as part of the counterterrorism policies of the Obama, Bush, and Clinton administrations." Visitors to their site can learn about their efforts to shed light on these various activities, and it is a good idea to take a quick look over their "Headline News" area to get started. Users should not miss the report "Principles for Government Data Mining", which can be found near the bottom of the homepage. This section is dedicated to looking into the threats to civil liberties posed by government data mining programs and recommends a series of reforms. Along with reading the report here, users can watch a webcast that features a panel of experts discussing the report's findings and future directions.
