From: Central Intelligence Agency

A fix is required to perfect the request.

From: Michael Best

I am interested in reports about the organization itself, both intelligence reports and historical analysis of the KGB. I hope that this will help you better limit the scope of the search.

From: Central Intelligence Agency

The request has been rejected as being too vague, burdensome or otherwise unprocessable.

From: Michael Best

Thank you VERY much - that search term seems like an excellent beginning point. With a little bit of luck, the information released from that will help me to better describe the exact records and types of records that I'm interested in.

I really appreciate your help!
