To Whom It May Concern:

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

Any records on former Kuwaiti Ambassador to the United States Saud Nasser Al-Saud Al-Sabah, whose 2012 death was widely reported (e.g. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2012/01/201212289294837.html).

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,

Chris Caesar

Mr. Caesar,

Your request for a fee waiver will be taken into consideration for approval; however, in accordance with DoD FOIA guidelines, all requesters are required to provide a fee amount they are willing to pay to process their FOIA request. We have placed you in the media category, which means you are obligated to pay duplication costs ($.15 per page) after the first 100 pages. We will contact you if processing fees exceed the stated amount you are willing to pay.

Additionally, request you state the type of records you are seeking, i.e., records related to his death, or other specific records; also, please state a time period associated with the requested records. USCENTCOM will continue processing your request upon your reply.

Thank you,

To Whom It May Concern:

Thank you for your reply. I would be willing to agree to pay up to $25, should costs reach that amount. I only ask that if you believe the costs will exceed $25, to let me know in writing before proceeding with the fulfillment of my request.

As for the scope of my request, I am particularly interested in any documents involving Saud Nasser Al-Saud Al-Sabah's work with "Citizens for a Free Kuwait," and related testimony before the then "Congressional Human Rights Caucus" (now known as the "Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission." That time period would coincide with the first Gulf War, so I think I could narrow my scope to the years 1990-1992.

Hopefully that is helpful; please don't hesitate to follow-up if further clarification is necessary.

Regards,
Chris Caesar
