Rejected by the CIA as too broad - how can I be more specific?
The CIA rejected one of my requests for all documents on an individual for being too broad: https://www.muckrock.com/foi/united-states-of-america-10/michael-ruppert-cia-11351/#1151527-fix-required
I really just want to know everything they have on Michael Ruppert, but I guess I need to ask for more specific things.
What should I be asking for?
You could start by narrowing the years you ask them to search. I know this isn’t ideal, but if you narrow it down and they give you responsive documents, you can submit a follow-up for later years.
You could start with 1995 - 2000, just spanning 5 years. That seems like a reasonable request.
It is not too broad. They are trying to get you to ask for his ‘file’ but they keep a lot of stuff outside the file. I’m not sure who is responsible for enforcing foia but you should follow up with them.
