On October 21, 2004 the Associated Press reported, "the American Civil Liberties Union sued the FBI on Thursday, trying to get more information about the agency's questioning of Muslims and Arabs as it investigates the possibility of pre-election terror attacks. The ACLU, which describes the unannounced interviews at homes, workplaces and mosques 'interrogations,' is seeking internal documents under the Freedom of Information Act about whether the government is protecting the constitutional rights of those interviewed."
