From: Emma Best

I am appealing the FBI's determination that I did not file a FOIA request but posed questions. There were no questions in the initial letter, and I requested records relating to a specific matter. I did not request the Bureau "to answer inquiries, create records, conduct research or draw conclusions." I did, however, request the agency "to provide access to reasonably described, nonexempt records." The Bureau's claim to the contrary is entirely baseless.
