Est. Completion March 8, 2021
Fix Required


From: JPat Brown

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Slides from a presentation on "Naruto Running," as made popular by a July 20th, 2019 Reddit post by the user u/PerturbedPython: https://www.reddit.com/r/memes/comments/cfbgj1/actual_air_force_brief_my_cousin_had_to_sit/

A .pdf of the screenshots is attached. The briefing was likely related to the "Area 51 raid" meme.

I request media fee status, as I am journalist who writes extensively about government records - https://www.muckrock.com/project/subjects-matter-fbi-files-10/, which have received national and international attention - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3219376/Undercover-FBI-agents-spy-annual-Burning-Man-festival-light-ongoing-war-terrorism-use-test-new-intelligence-collection-technology.html

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
