I am appealing the finding that the request did not provide enough information to conduct the search. The Bureau has repeatedly affirmed that it can conduct searches for organizations based on the name. Further, I provided a specific citation of their appearance in a file, which is a lead for further searches. The Bureau's choice to ignore this is an obvious sign that the request was not properly processed, as is their capricious decision to suddenly declare that the level of information provided is insufficient, despite its sufficiency in numerous other instances.
