Pin It

Why does it take 3.5 years for a major agency housed at Bolling Air Force Base, D.C., to process a freedom-of-information request?  Though, in my case, that don’t-hold-yo’-breath waiting period may not have exceeded a few stalls incurred by some other FOIA requesters, it nevertheless stands as a monument to the Murphy’s Law of FOIA Processing: ”If we can avoid timeliness, we will do so.”This official, “kiss off, pal!” mind-set alone ought to qualify the offender for that dubious distinction created by the National Security Archive at the George Washington University (http://www2.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/ ) — the Rosemary Award, named after Pres. Nixon’s personal secretary (Rose Mary Woods), caretaker of his missing 18.5 minutes of (presumably) juicy audiotape during the Watergate scandal.  As I present to you the text of the dismissal reply of Oct. 23, 2013, from the DIA FOIA office to my request of April 27, 2010, I want you to know my intention to FOIA-seek a copy of the entire case file on that request.  If the Agency chooses to spend another 3.5 years ignoring my effort to help resolve the underlying whistleblower revelation, then I’m game to stay in the game.  After all, what’s at stake here may well involve the Agency’s role in fraudulent concealment of a CRIME — i.e., the alleged UFO-alienabduction of a young federal employee in 1977, as documented and investigated via the DIA-managed “Operation Tango-Sierra.”]
