By asking for "processing notes," I request all materials related to the aforementioned FOIA request, which itself was in reference to the suicide of "Abdul Rahm Maalba al-Amry," also known as Abdul Rahman al Amri or Al Umari or Guantanamo Detainee 199. The request includes any material related to this request which contains remarks, comments, notes, explanations, etc. made by NCIS personnel about the processing of this request (and appeals, if appropriate), the invocation of exemptions, or related matters. This is to include any analysts' notes made during the processing of the requests, any standard worksheets completed by the analysts, any justifications for exemption invocations or other supporting documentation provided to the Appeals Authority, and any correspondence referencing the requests, including tasking orders, emails, and coordination documentation.

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, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
