I made a FOIA Freedom of Information Act Request for my NSA PRISM data. I asked for any data, records, dossiers, documents, etc related to me, Micah Greene. It took them a couple of weeks to send me their rejection letter. You can find it in full, below. I redacted a few things that might be too personally identifying to me, like my full physical address, and the case #(although I'm not sure if the case # would matter or not.)
If you don't want to read the entire thing, I can sum it up for you; My request was rejected because the existence or non-existence of such records is classified. I'm not allowed to know what they have on me in PRISM, or even if they have anything(I'm pretty damn certain that they do.).
I am planning to appeal this. I'm no lawyer, but I think that I can appeal it because my data cannot possibly be related in any way to counter-terrorism or national security. My data is simply that of your average 30 year old balding ginger living in the midwest. I'm not a threat to anybody. Or maybe I am, because I'm publishing this article? If so, that says scary things about our democracy.
