Dear Mr. McDonald,

The 20 page release represents all records responsive to the subject that we were able to locate. If you believe additional records on the subject exist, please provide supporting details that would enable us to conduct another search.

Please keep in mind the FOIPA does not require federal agencies to answer inquiries, create records, conduct research, or draw conclusions concerning queried data. Rather, the FOIPA requires agencies to provide access to reasonably described, nonexempt records.

Thank you,

From: Gavin McDonald

Hi. I was reading the records of Rafael Quintero Ibarbia that the FBI unclassified on 08-13-2013, and was wondering why there is still redactions on the released material? When will these be removed from the records?

Sincerely,

Gavin McDonald.

From: FOIPAQUESTIONS

Good morning,

This is in reference to your Freedom of Information Act/Privacy (FOIPA) request concerning miscellaneous inquiries. The FOIPA does not require federal agencies to answer inquiries, create records, conduct research, or draw conclusions concerning queried data. Rather, the FOIPA requires agencies to provide access to reasonably described, nonexempt records. The questions posed in the reference letter are not FOIPA requests because they do not comply with the FOIPA and its regulations.

For information concerning redactions, please see 5 U.S.C. §§552/552a.
