Kennedy.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

An interim response, stating the request is being processed.

From: Federal Bureau of Investigation

A no responsive documents response.

From: Michael Best

In addition to the CRS search, I am requesting a cross-reference search and an ELSUR search.

Thank you.

From: Michael Best

I am appealing the integrity of the search, as the records have been known to exist since then, are listed in the FBI's RIDS index as existing, and have been released. While some records may have been destroyed in 1971, thousands of pages were not. Their existence is well documented.
