FOIA APPEAL

Dear appeals officer:

This is an appeal under the Freedom of Information Act.

On April 29, 2014, I made a FOIA request for the following:
A copy of the following report:
Site Holding: CB DT
Title: Cold Death, Chemical Weapons and Means of Mass Destruction. (Kholodnaya Smert', Khimicheskoye Orozhiye i Sredstva Massovogo Unichtozheniya).
Author(s): Gavrish, F. P.
Corp Author Name: ARMED FORCES MEDICAL INTELLIGENCE CENTER FORT DETRICK FREDERICK MD
Report Number: AFMIC-HT-193-85
Publish Date: 19851231
Distribution Statement: Distribution limited to US Gov't agencies only; Proprietary Information; 31 Dec 1985. Other requests for this document shall be referred to AFMIC-IS, Fort Detrick, Frederick, MD 21701-5004.
Export Controlled: N

This request was sent to The U.S. Army, Dugway Proving Ground. On the same day, I was informed that the record is "not in [their] purview and does not belong to [their] organization." However, I believe the record is in their possession. Therefore, I appeal the denial of the record based on someone else having purview.

Further, I have asked Fort Detrick FOIA staff to process the request and have not received even an acknowledgement. I was given the email address atusarmy.detrick.usag.mbx.dhr-foia@mail.mil - however, I have not gotten any reply to my inquiries there. Therefore, I appeal the rejection of my FOIA request, I also appeal the refusal to acknowledge the request, I appeal the refusal to assign a FOIA tracking number, and I appeal all search fees based on the fact that a statutory deadline has passed and the 2007 amendments to FOIA prohibit search fees in this situation.

For the reasons herein and all other reasons deemed appropriate by the appeals authority, I hereby appeal.

Regards,
Jason Smathers
