In response to a Freedom of Information Act request by the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, the Department of Defense has released documents confirming that its officials have conducted surveillance of student groups at universities nationwide, including the State University of New York at Albany, William Paterson University, Southern Connecticut State University and the University of California at Berkeley. The documents, which are available online, indicate that e-mails sent by various student groups — including those opposed to the war in Iraq and those who oppose the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy — were intercepted and monitored by the government. The reports do not indicate any terrorist activity by the monitored students. In December, a Pentagon spokesman told Inside Higher Ed that “there are intelligence analysts out there who make judgments based upon years of experience on whether or not they proceed with a threat as verified or non-verified” in response to investigations of 400-page Department of Defense document obtained by NBC News.
