Good Morning,

Africa Command for any files regarding actions taken by the Ford
Administration and CIA during the Angolan War of Independence as well as
during the first years of the Angolan Civil War.

The case processing number for this request is 2020-096. Your request is
being processed in accordance with Title 5 U.S.C. ยง 552, the Freedom of
Information Act. The actual processing time for the records you requested
may depend upon our administrative backlog and records that may require
consultation with other DoD components and other agencies. If you have any
questions regarding your inquiry, please contact me by phone at + (49)
0711-729-4232, or by email: africom.stuttgart.accc.list.foia-mba@mail.mil,
and refer to FOIA #2020-096.

NOTE: This command was stood up in 2008 and therefore does not possess
records from the Ford Administration.
I would suggest that you should resubmit your request directly to the Ford

Please let me know if you want to withdraw this request.
