  • Department of Homeland Security FOIA 2015-HQFO-00065 Acknowledgment

From: Joshua Eaton

Dear Mr. Holzer,

I'm writing in response to your letter denying a fee waiver request for FOIA request number 2015-HQFO-00065.

I am a professional journalist who regularly writes about national security and human rights for outlets that include the Boston Globe, Al Jazeera America, Salon, GlobalPost, Huffington Post and Religion Dispatches. In addition, I am a digital producer at the New England Center for Investigative Reporting and the editor-in-chief of Spare Change News, both established news outlets located in Boston, Massachusetts.

I am making this FOIA request as part of the news gathering process, and I will use the documents I am requesting to produce original news stories and analysis. My ongoing relationship with a number of local, national and international publications insures that any articles I write based on these documents will be published and distributed widely to the public at large. In addition, I will make the documents themselves available to the public at large through MuckRock.com and my own personal website, JoshuaEaton.net.

Please let me know if this information is sufficient to proceed with my fee waiver request, or if our office needs more information.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
Joshua Eaton
