Awaiting Acknowledgement


From: Paul Galante

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Records on Qian Xuesen (aka Hsue-shen Tsien, H.S. Tsien, Qian Xuelin, Qian Xue-sen) (b. 12/11/1911 - d. 10/31/2009), a noted Chinese rocket scientist instrumental in developing China's nuclear weapons and missile programs. The scope of this request is to include briefings, cables, letters, memos, and reports, and exclude translations of scientific articles or abstracts and copies of open source material, such as newspaper articles.

If any potentially responsive records have been destroyed and/or transferred to NARA, then I request copies of the destruction or transfer slips as well as any other documentation relating to, mentioning or describing said transfer or destruction, to include but not be limited to confirmation that CIA has no other copies of said records. If previously released records within the scope described above are available, then I request a rolling release consisting of those records while additional records are located and processed for release.

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.
