My request was not too broad and specified a time frame of "Janurary 1st 2015 to present. I am requesting all requests that were responded to as "The FBI can neither confirm nor deny the existence of records responsive to your request." otherwise known as GLOMAR." ... The response the FBI took to FOIA request is accessible and the FOIAs they released wouldn't have to be reviewed specifically due to them already of having been reviewed. There is no undue burden on the FBI to find and release all the FOIAs that were responded to via GLOMAR. I ask the FBI to conduct a search and release the responsive requests.
