From: Michael Best

Please specify what the unusual circumstances are. Thank you.

From: Michael Best

Please perform the free two hours of search time while you reconsider my fee category based on the following information: I am a member of the media who has and will continue to use my editorial skills to inform the public of events involving your Agency, such as with AND Magazine. http://andmagazine.com/us/1431865273.html Based on this, I ask that you waive the search fee request.

From: Michael Best

Please describe the "multiple computer on-line searches," the "number of offices tasked to conduct searches" as well as which offices they are and "the time spent determining the responsiveness."

I will very gladly agree to duplication fees once the number of pages has been determined, as there is no legal requirement to agree to or to pay duplication fees before a search has been conducted or a page count determined.

From: Central Intelligence Agency

A fix is required to perfect the request.
