To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
A copy of the FBI's files (affidavits, investigative files, interview transcripts, etc.) on the 2010 Freedom Flotilla effort to break the Israeli siege of the Gaza Strip. For reference, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaza_Freedom_Flotilla.
I also request a copy of any communications between the FBI and the government of Israel.
Please search any "cross-referenced" records relevant to this effort.
Please also search “ELSUR” (Electronic Surveillance) records.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
