In what format will you make the public release? I am seeking not just the material, but the material in a specific "vector" format. Will your public release satisfy that component of my request?

From: Air Force Space Command

Mr. Welsh,

Sir, I do not know how the public release will be put out but likely will be through Public Affairs. Generally such releases can be saved in .pdf format.

My request for your consideration is to wait for the release and see what is made public. Then if there is something else you seek that wasn't made public you can submit a new FOIA request for the specific information.

Will you still consider "withdrawing" your request?

Respectfully,

//SIGNED//

If it's your position that the records do not exist, then I'd ask you file my request as refused rather than withdrawn.
