From: R. M. Seibert

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request a copy of the following automatically declassified documents that have been archived in the CREST 25-Year Program system:

(1) All documents on, about or mentioning "Scientology" that were entered into CREST by "foia-staff" on 2013-01-08 and currently indexed online via the web-based "Finding Aid" search tool as shown here: http://www.foia.cia.gov/search/site/Scientology

Electronic Standard Document Numbers (ESDN) for the above referenced search results:

(2) All documents on, about or mentioning "Scientology" that were automatically declassified for the CREST 25-Year Archive after 2013-01-08 that have not yet been incorporated into the document index used by the web-based "Finding Aid" search tool.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest due to the Church of Scientology's infamous "Operation Snow White" campaign in the 1970s; the world's largest covert infiltration of government agencies that was widely reported in several of the declassified items listed above and here: http://www.xenu-directory.net/news/images/thecompiler-1978-22.pdf

Additionally, the requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Ms. R. M. Seibert
