Mr. Smathers -

Attached is TSA's response to your FOIA request dated June 6, 2012.

From: Jason Smathers

I appeal all redactions made. It is clear that they have been over used. For example, there is no privacy expectation of a government employee's name when they are carrying out their work. There can be no accountability if all names are redacted. b(5) appears to be overused as well. For these and all reasons deemed appropriate by the appeals authority, I appeal all redactions.

I did the original processing and sent it out via e-mail to the requester. I do not know who was assigned the appeal and would appreciate it if you would forward this to that person for response back to the requester.
