Communications

From: Troy Carter

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Cables to and from CIA agent Alfreda Frances Bikowsky regarding Al Qaeda operatives in Montana in March, April, May, and June, 2003. The existence of this agent and the cables has been widely reported in the media. See: https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/12/19/senior-cia-officer-center-torture-scandals-alfreda-bikowsky/

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Troy Carter, Reporter
Bozeman Daily Chronicle
