Thank you for your response.

To narrow my request, I would like a list of all Memorandums on anything related to TAO sent to the Department of Justice, National Security Division addressed to the Attorney General or the deputy Attorneys General, and I ask only for the meta data for these memos.

I'm defining metadata as, who it was sent from, to, the subject, date of the memo and the purpose of the memo. If this is still too broad, please let me know and also if narrowing my request to a specific time period is sufficient to narrow the request. If so, I would request only June 1, 2013 through today's date.

Thank you,
Jason Gulledge
