URGENT RELEASE: The CIA’s Terence McKenna FOIA request response – POSITIVE affiliation
by Jan Irvin
November 15, 2012
Recently I filed a CIA Freedom of Information Act request on Terence Kemp McKenna with the CIA. The response came back that it’s “classified” information, and that he maintained “an openly acknowledged Agency affiliation”.
A basic glossary is here to help people understand the FIOA.
AFFILIATION – A MEMBER OF
DENY – REJECT OR TURN DOWN THE REQUEST
CLASSIFIED – SECRET OR HIDDEN – SEE (b)(1).
RESPONSIVE – Letters that are NOT classified that the CIA MAY send. Such responsive letters are marked with the CIA’s stamp and release date when they’re allowed to be sent out as “responsive” to the FOIA act requests.
APPEAL – this means to appeal their decision to deny my request and not provide the documents they don’t consider “responsive”.
A DENIAL of FOIA RESPONSIVE documents does not mean that they didn’t find anything. It means they found classified documents that they cannot send, and are waiving the law around as justification, and therefore they denied my request and said that I could APPEAL their decision within 45 days. If there was nothing found, there would be no “openly acknowledged Agency affiliation” to reveal, nor would there be a request to deny, much less any need to appeal such! Just some common sense needed here, folks! Basic understanding of the English language is key to understanding this document.
I have been shocked by most people’s complete lack of ability to understand the basic English terms in this document. Hopefully the above glossary helps you and I won’t have to address this nonsense again. READ and COMPREHEND WHAT you’re reading.
