I would like to file an appeal on this decision on the basis that the last communication does not indicate that the search used variations on the search term 'w00' (with numeric 0 characters and not alphabetic O characters). The difference is important to this search, so please confirm that the search was conducted with NUMERIC characters w'00' w'00'. Also please confirm that FBI has searched the Central Records System and the MISUR, FISUR, ELSUR and TESUR indices. Thank you!
