A request for information about the feds might rehash privacy policy in the US is published by Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Programs now. Quoting the page:

Agencies of the Federal Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program are planning to develop a joint National Privacy Research Strategy. On behalf of the agencies, the Cyber Security and Information Assurance Research and Development Senior Steering Group seeks public input on the vital privacy objectives that should be considered for the goals of the strategy. The National Privacy Research Strategy will be used to guide federally-funded privacy research and provide a framework for coordinating research and development in privacy-enhancing technologies.

Awkwardly, just downloading the page is subject federal tracking and also exposes the reader to tracking in the stream of commerce. Yes, your activities are reported to Google Analytics. Which means – you can’t try to learn what’s going on with privacy policy without first agreeing to give up measurable amounts of your privacy.
