To Whom It May Concern:

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

Indices and lists of documents labeled and numbered "T.S. No." or "TS No.", including those that may be listed or sub-listed by year or subject (i.e. a 1962 document may be numbered "104642/62", while an aerial reconnaissance document may be numbered "100309/a").

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, 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.

An acknowledgement letter, stating the request is being processed.

From: Central Intelligence Agency

The request has been rejected as being too vague, burdensome or otherwise unprocessable.

From: Michael Best

I am appealing the rejection as "too broad" as I requested specific documents and provided a lead for locating them. While a search might not be successful in locating the files, I provided enough information for a good faith attempt to be made.

From: Central Intelligence Agency

A letter stating that the request appeal has been rejected.
