Please conduct a search of the Central Records System, including but not limited to the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices, for both main-file records and cross-reference records. Please do NOT limit the search to previously released records.

From: Michael Best

I am appealing the integrity of the search for the records.

My request was very specific "Please conduct a search of the Central Records System, including but not limited to the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices, for both main-file records and cross-reference records. Please do NOT limit the search to previously released records."

NONE of these search were performed, and the last line specifically and emphatically stated that I did NOT want the search limited to previously released records. The search was limited in precisely that way, anyway.
