I got a letter from the governmentImage'
in response to
Quote:

National Archives and Records Administration
Ramona Oliver, FOIA Officer
Office of the General Counsel
Room 3110
8601 Adelphi Road
College Park, MD 20740-6001
Dear Sir or Madam:
Under the “Freedom of Information Act”, I am able to request many things from the government. I would like a copy of “Production of Uranium Feed Materials”, and below is the correct formatting for such a request.

| 263 | | 2234 | | MPPCK | 16 | 910 | P | Production of Uranium Feed Materials | | No |

I also would like “Don’t be a Sucker/Propaganda/Prejudices”

| 263 | | 1643 | | MPPC | 16 | 695 | P | Don't be a Sucker/Propaganda/Prejudices | | No |
I would request your response within ten (10) business days.
If you choose to deny this request, please provide a written explanation for the denial including a reference to the specific statutory exemption(s) upon which you rely. Also, please provide all segregable portions of otherwise exempt material.
Please be advised that I am prepared to pursue whatever legal remedy necessary to obtain access to the requested records. I would note that violation of the open records law can result in the award of court costs and attorney fees.
Thank you for your assistance.
Sincerely,
X


Aparently this is being forwarded to the CIA for processing, as these are CIA films. OHNOES!

Why would he get on the terrorism watchlist? He's only requesting a pair of documents from National archives that have been made available through the Freedom of Information Act.

It is pretty funny when you think about it though. A government agency makes top-secret videos and then (albeit eventually) turns them over to a public archive for public viewing/distribution anyway. A quick web search turned up a guy's site that has a full list of films that can now be requested from the NARA.

Shame I'm in the UK really. I feel that 'The Sun' newspaper over here could learn a thing or two from top titles off this list like 'How Free Should the Press Be?' and 'Brainwashing'. Heehee! Mind you though, I see what you're saying with some of the titles like 'Spying for Uncle Sam - Part 1'!

A footnote there is that they might charge you a reproduction fee! You'll have to let us know (if you're still around) if you here anything more on this one, Fireware!!

That's why the people themselves need to find a way to get more power in order to improve government for the people by the people.
