In this newly declassified document entitled “Untangling the Web: a guide to internet research”, the NSA drops the docs on the governemnt’s view of internet research resources. (The information is a bit dated as this is the 2007 edition.)

Untangling the Web was released as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request by the open government group Muckrock.

You can download your own copy of this 600+ page PDF directly from the NSA.
