A PDF file published at GovernmentAttic.org contains, according to its description, the “NSA [US National Security Agency] administrative processing file for FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] request for records on Google and contracts With Google”.

The Freedom Of Information Act is a US law that allows people to request certain information from the US government. Journalists and activists typically make those requests. Sometimes those requests uncover interesting things, but sometimes they just yield boring bureaucratic documents.
