Documents Show Tor Project is Nearly 100% U.S Government Funded

Author Yasha Levine is writing a book called Surveillance Valley, and in his research, filed a FIOA request that produced nearly 2,500 pages of correspondence between the Tor Project, and it's main funder, a CIA spinoff now known as the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG). Yasha has released all the documents obtained in the FIOA request on document cloud.
