To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Any and all documents, emails, memos, situation reports, contracts or any other files mentioning "The Increment", or "E Squadron," the British composite organization formed from selected SAS, SBS and Special Reconnaissance Regiment operators at the disposal of the Director of Special Forces and MI6.
In the event that the contents of the requested documents are classified under Executive Order 13526, I also make the following additional requests:
Pursuant to section 1.2 of Executive Order 13526, I am requesting the level of classification of this information and its existence/nonexistence.
Pursuant to section 1.3 of Executive Order 13526, I am requesting the specific authority which classified this information.
Pursuant to section 1.4 of Executive Order 13526, I am requesting the specific classification categories of this information, as well as an identification or description of the damage to national security which the disclosure of this information would produce.
Pursuant to section 1.5 of Executive Order 13526, I am requesting the specific duration of time for which this classification will stand.
Pursuant to section 1.6 of Executive Order 13526, I am requesting all classification markings about this information, including (1) one of the three classification levels defined in section 1.2 of Executive Order 13526, (2) the identity, by name and position, or by personal identifier, of the original classification authority, (3) the agency and office of origin, if not otherwise evident, (4) declassification instructions, and (5) a concise reason for classification that, at a minimum, cites the applicable classification categories in section 1.4 of Executive Order 13526.
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.
The request has been rejected as being too vague, burdensome or otherwise unprocessable.
