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

According to a legal memo in the Snowden documents, GCHQ will break international law as long as it's "acceptable among the 5-eyes community."


How often does the CIA break international law? Please provide any legal memos, correspondence, or other documents that discuss the CIA breaking international law. Please include statistics per year from 1995 to present day on how often the CIA breaks international law.

Please also include any and all processing notes associated with this FOIA request.

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.
