To Whom It May Concern:

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

I am certain that I was watching an episode of the Charlie Rose television program, where a biographer of Saddam Hussein detailed a visit by Saddam Hussein to the Joseph Stalin museum in Gori, Georgia, in the 1970s. I am requesting any documentation of this event, whether it be diplomatic cables, photographs, archived press reports (in any language), or any materials which either substantiates or refutes this belief.

Considering that Saddam's dead (we all remember the shaky cellphone footage) and that Saddam's brutality was a major contributor to the 2003 war with Iraq, I believe that the release of this information will significantly contribute to our understanding of the reasoning behind the United State's decision to go to war with his regime.

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

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Robert Delaware
