To Whom It May Concern:

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

Files relating to or mentioning Benjamin Ben-Eliezer, also spelled Binyamin Fuad Ben-Eliezer (Hebrew: בנימין פואד בן אליעזר‎‎; 12 February 1936 – 28 August 2016). His death has been widely reported. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/29/world/middleeast/benjamin-ben-eliezer-former-israeli-defense-minister-dies-at-80.html

Please conduct a search of the Central Records System, including but not limited to the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices, for both main-file records and cross-reference records.

I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the Bureau for AND Magazine, MuckRock and Glomar Disclosure.

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.
