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.
There are eFOIA files available for you to download.
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.
