To Whom It May Concern:

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

1. Any and all documents awarding compensation and/or discussing compensation and/or assessing rates of compensation to the owner of the land on which the American military built Combat Outpost Dolby (COP Dolby) in Baghdad, Iraq.

A no responsive documents response.

From: Brian Sparks

I appeal the determination of "no responsive documents" based on a DD 2949 claim filed mid-June, 2015 seeking investigation into US Army's acquisition of farmland in Iraq on which to build Combat Outpost Dolby. The investigation must have produced some number of documents responsive to this request. DD 2949 filed with Wanda Grady, Assistant Inspector General, USCENTCOM.

Thank you,

Brian Sparks
