A no responsive documents response.

From: Jens Porup

Dear CIA,

This FOIA request refers to *any* poisons ever used by the CIA for assassination. As the Church Committee clearly demonstrated in 1975, the CIA (at least at that time, *ahem*) did indeed engage in assassinations.

Please see:

I am appealing this response because your reply contradicts material that is already in the public record.

Please disclose any and all documents referring to the development, deployment, use and storage of said poisons up to today. Please also include a list of any and all persons so assasinated by poison in the history of the CIA from its creation to its present day.

This FOIA request refers to the CIA from its inception to its present day, and all details of this request should be interpreted as such.

regards
JMP
