To Whom It May Concern:

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

A copy of the FBI's files on former FBI official George J. Wiggins

Proof of death should not be necessary due to the subject's inclusion on the Dead List.

I am journalist who writes extensively about FBI files - https://www.muckrock.com/project/subjects-matter-fbi-files-10/, which have received national and international attention - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3219376/Undercover-FBI-agents-spy-annual-Burning-Man-festival-light-ongoing-war-terrorism-use-test-new-intelligence-collection-technology.html

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

In the event that there are fees, 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.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

JPat Brown

From: JPat Brown

This is an appeal of a frankly ridiculous overreach of the Glomar exemption. Mr. Wiggins is both dead and a known former FBI official, any expectations of privacy are moot. Please process this request, as you are legally required to do so.
