From: Guillaume Dasquie

To Whom It May Concern:

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

CIA reports, briefs, memo and messages about saudi leader Prince Turki al-Faisal, former director of the saudi intelligence services (1977 - 2001), regarding his contacts with Usama bin Laden, personally and, mostly, through his special envoys or agents, especially for the years 1999, 2000 and 2001. Falling the 80' until 2001 at least, Prince Turki monitored deals and contacts between Usama bin Laden and saudi intelligence services, as he raised himself in an interview (attached) - in which he admited just 5 private talks with Usama bin Laden.

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.
