From: Patrick Mackie

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All information derived from FAA or Patriot act collection involving Anwar al-Awlaki (with last name also referred to as al-Aulaqi al-Awlaqi and أنور العولقي in arabic). Anwar's death has been highly reported in the media, the president spoke of his death, and documents within your agency should verify his death.

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.
