This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Any records relating to Edwin Paul Wilson (May 3, 1928 - September 10, 2012) and whose death was reported by the New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/23/us/edwin-p-wilson-cia-operative-with-cloak-and-dagger-life-dies-at-84.html?_r=1&smid=tw-share, a former CIA and US Naval Intelligence officer who was convicted in 1983 of illegally selling weapons to Libya.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. It's release will contribute to the public's understanding of an historically significant case involving counterintelligence and counterterrorism elements of law enforcement.

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.
