DOJ OIG Announces the Release of a Further-Declassified Version of its 2009 Report on the President’s Surveillance Program

 The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) announced today that a new version of the previously-released “Report on the President’s Surveillance Program” was released yesterday in response to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation brought by The New York Times in the Southern District of New York. This report was originally prepared in 2009 by the Offices of the Inspectors General of the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, and Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and delivered to the relevant Congressional oversight and intelligence committees, as well as agency leadership offices. Because the report was classified in its entirety, its contents could not be disclosed to the public at that time, and the Offices of the Inspectors General instead released publicly a separate, unclassified summary report. In April 2015, a version of the full report was released that contained information that had been declassified by agencies with the authority to do so. The version of the full report released today, which contains additional information that has been declassified by the same agencies, can be found on the OIG’s website at the following link: https://oig.justice.gov/reports/2015/PSP-09-18-15-full.pdf.
