To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Select documents cited in the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Study of the Central Intelligence Agency's Detention and Interrogation Program.
Please note that these files are not exempt under the "operational files" exemption as they are "specific subject matter of an investigation by the congressional intelligence committees," which is explicitly non-exempt under 50 U.S. Code § 3141.
Specifically, I request the following document mentioned on Page 27 of the Report:
CIA records regarding President George W. Bush's response to description of enhanced interrogation techniques. Responsive documents were noted in the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Study of the Central Intelligence Agency's Detention and Interrogation Program. The relevant passage noting these records is on page 18 of the report:
'According to CIA records, when briefed in April 2006. the president expressed discomfort with the "image of a detainee, chained to the ceiling, clothed in a diaper, and forced to go to the bathroom on himself.'
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.
