Government backs away from web snooping plans

The federal government has moved to distance itself from its controversial web snooping plans during the election campaign and the decision to hide details from the public. Attorney-General Robert McClelland yesterday defended his department censoring about 90 per cent of a secret government document, obtained under freedom of information (FoI) laws, outlining plans to snoop on Australians’ web surfing. He said the proposed policy – which could see individuals’ web browsing history stored for law enforcement – was “not something the government is driving as an issue”. Rather, it was driven by the Attorney-General’s Department. “To be frank, I haven’t seen the document,” McClelland said. “I literally haven’t seen the document. I don’t know the content and I’m not in a position to judge whether those redactions are or are not appropriate. I haven’t been a party to the negotiations.” However, this website is aware that the censored document had to pass through McClelland’s office before it was released.

Don't you just love governments that say they allow freedom of information and then do everything to prevent it. It's seems freedom of information for big corporations is one thing, but freedom of information to individuals is another.
