From: Emma Best

My original request EXPLICITLY requested the processing NOT be limited to previously processed records. Your insistence that I yet again affirm that this is the case is ridiculous, but I officially affirm it – per my original request, " If previously released records are available, then I request a rolling release consisting of those records while additional records are located and processed for release."

I must ask: are you (and your colleagues, this is a repeating issue) ignorant of the stated scope of the requests you're processing, or is it simply the Bureau's policy to ignore it?
