To Whom It May Concern:

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

Records relating to Yuri Ivanovich Nosenko (Russian: Юрий Иванович Носенко; October 30, 1927 – August 23, 2008), a KGB defector (his CIA handler was Tennent H. 'Pete' Bagley) and a figure of significant controversy within the U.S. intelligence community, since his claims contradicted another defector, Anatoliy Golitsyn, who believed he was a KGB plant. Please include any records cross-referenced with Anatoliy Mikhaylovich Golitsyn (Russian: Анатолий Михайлович Голицын; born August 25, 1926). Yuri Nosenko's death has been widely reported. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/26/AR2008082603493.html

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.

Sincerely,

Michael Best
