Dear Requester,

The FOIA allows the public to request access to federal agency records, except to the extent that such records are protected from disclosure by one of nine exemptions. A proper FOIA request is one in which an individual seeks records of an agency. In order to continue to process your request we require a proper name. Your request is being held in abeyance pending a response from you, within 15 days. If no response is received your case will be administratively closed.

My appeal is based solely upon the public release of documents via your former Booze Allen Hamiliton's contractor employee Edward Snowden. According to the public dissemination of Edward Snowden's documents, the NSA violated the subsection "a" exactly at the subsubsection's 1 and 2 of the section 1.7 of the Executive Order 13526.

Below is the mentioned full text section of Executive Order 13526:

Sec. 1.7. (Executive Order 13526) Classification Prohibitions and Limitations. 
(a) In no case shall information be classified, continue to be maintained as classified, or fail to be declassified in order to:
(1) conceal violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error;
(2) prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency;
(3) restrain competition; or
(4) prevent or delay the release of information that does not require protection in the interest of the national security.

According to the former contractor Edward Snowden, the NSA engaged in illegal domestic surveillance of United States citizens according to the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights. The phrasing "domestic survelliance" never appears in the FOIA rejection letter that was received. The ommison of the phrasisng "domestic surveillance" is a clear legal violation of the executive order 13526. A revision of the rejection letter is requested according to executive order 13526.

The request has been rejected by the agency.
