Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

From: Central Intelligence Agency

The request has been rejected, with the agency stating that it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the requested documents.

From: Ninan Duvall

My appeal is based upon the CIA's discontinued Project MKUltra , which main objectives were behavior modification and mind control through the testing of psychedelic drugs, hypnosis, and sensory deprivation upon innocent civilians. The American public's renewed interests in the MKUltra program from the dissemination of FOIA requested documents and the Cuba/China sonic weapon attacks, should render this rejection applicable under the general safety of United States civillians. This FOIA rejection should be invalid under 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.

This FOIA rejection appears to be rejected upon the violation of subsubsection's 1 and 2 of the section 1.7 of the Executive Order 13526. A rejection of this FOIA request according to these subsections appears to be only for the purpose of preventing the dissemination of documents that would provide proof of violations of United States Federal laws, and to prevent embarrassment of the CIA for violations of Federal laws and this FOIA request.

From: Central Intelligence Agency

The request has been rejected by the agency.
