I request a waiver of all fees associated with this request as it serves a compelling public interest in better understanding the sources of US Iraq policy. I am an academic researcher specializing in US foreign policy and all conclusions derived from responsive documents will be incorporated into scholarly papers and publications examining the use of intelligence in crafting a US strategy for dealing with Iraq. scholarly research on the Iraq War and disseminated through scholarly publications and presentations. I have previously used declassified documents to advance public understanding of the operations of the U.S. government in the foreign policy area.

I have also conducted scholarly research into US government operations with respect to Iraq that has been disseminated to the public as part of my doctoral dissertation, available at http://escholarship.org/uc/item/6x16801p. In addition to incorporating conclusions derived from responsive documents into academic papers and publications that will substantially advance public understanding, I will publicly post all responsive documents.
