From: Emma North-Best

I am appealing the determination that I did not reasonably describe the records sought, as I did and provided a firm lead in the search in the form of a prior, official disclosure by the government. Further, the Bureau not being able to search for the records in its index does NOT exempt it from FOIA, nor does it make the search unreasonably described. The effort was major enough that the FBI Director described it openly to Congress in a briefing, making it far from some obscure set of records for a long forgotten case.
