From: Jason Smathers

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All emails and corresponding attachments sent to (to:, cc: or bcc:) or from Thomas J. Vilsack (or any person who communicates on his behalf) where the email contains any of the following keywords in the subject or body: "just between us" "breach" "big trouble" "too late" "stupid" "bad company" "perception issue" "the real objective" "very slippery slope" or "true disaster". Limit responsive emails to those sent between 01/20/2009 and the date this request is processed. If he does not use email, expand the search to all methods of communication which he does use.

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Jason Smathers

Dear Mr. Smathers:

This is in reference to your Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) request dated Sunday, Nov. 14, 2010, tracking number OSEC-11-030, received by email at the USDA FOIA Service Center.

You asked for the following records:

“All emails and corresponding attachments sent to (to:, cc: or bcc:) or from Thomas J. Vilsack (or any person who communicates on his behalf) where the email contains any of the following keywords in the subject or body: "just between us" "breach" "big trouble" "too late" "stupid" "bad company" "perception issue" "the real objective" "very slippery slope" or "true disaster". Limit responsive emails to those sent between 01/20/2009 and the date this request is processed. If he does not use email, expand the search to all methods of communication which he does use”

In order to process your request thoroughly, we request clarification on two points:

1. Your request asks for emails and corresponding attachments to or from “any person who communicates” on behalf of Secretary Vilsack. Could you clarify or list the specific name(s) of person(s) or titles of USDA officials whose records you wish searched in this regard?

2. With respect to the “to or from” portion of the request, does this indicate you are referring to email accounts?

We await your written clarification of these two points so that a search may proceed to fulfill your request.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

1. Your request asks for emails and corresponding attachments to or from “any person who communicates” on behalf of Secretary Vilsack. Could you clarify or list the specific name(s) of person(s) or titles of USDA officials whose records you wish searched in this regard?

When requesting records from “any person who communicates” on behalf of Secretary Vilsack, I am referring to employees such as administrative assistants, secretaries, executive assistants or other employee who may communicate on behalf of Secretary Vilsack.

2. With respect to the “to or from” portion of the request, does this indicate you are referring to email accounts?

I am referring to email primarily, but also to include other forms of communication.

From: USDA FOIA Service Center

Mr. Smathers,
