Mr. Smathers,

I am working on your FOIA request pertaining to meetings that President
Bush attended between 09/11/2001-09/20/2001. Could you tell me if there
are particular meetings or types of meetings (for example: Cabinet
meetings) you are interested in? If you can provide any additional
information, it could help my colleagues and me as we search for responsive
materials.

Thank you,

Rachel Friend,

I am interested in all types of meetings. However, I am looking for records related to 9/11 and the response to 9/11. If you wanted to limit the search to that topic, that would be acceptable. I made an assumption that much of what the president did in those 10 days would be related to 9/11 and the response to it. Thus, I asked for all meeting records in that time.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

From: Rachel Friend

Thank you for the reply. This information will be helpful for our
searching.

Mr. Smathers,

I am working on your request for audio and video recordings of meetings
with the President from 9/11/2001 - 9/20/2001. Could you please advise if
you want to include or exclude the following from your request:

1. Do you want to include broadcast footage. For example from CPSAN and
network news broadcasts?
2. duplicates of materials
3. Audio and video from the same event. If there is a video recording and
an audio recording of the same meeting do you want the separate audio
recording even though the same audio is captured on the video recording?
4. Do you want to include events where the press was present or only closed
press events?

If you have any questions you can give me a call at 214-346-1655.
Thanks,
Sarah Barca
