Subject: FOIA request -- "The Rational Observer"
Dec. 30, 2010
Dear FBI Records Section:
This email is a request under the Freedom of Information and Privacy Acts.
I request a complete and thorough search of all filing systems and locations for all records maintained by your agency pertaining to and/or captioned:
The Rational Observer
This college newspaper was published by the FBI sometime between 1965 and 1975 and distributed by the FBI at American University in Washington, DC. Its existence is referred to in the opinion of a federal civil rights lawsuit (Hobson v. Wilson).
Please send me all available records on The Rational Observer
This request specifically includes where appropriate "main" files and "see references," including but not limited to numbered and lettered sub files and control files. I also request a search of the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Index, or any similar technique for locating records of electronic surveillance. I request that all records be produced with the administrative pages. I wish to be sent copies of "see reference" cards, abstracts, search slips, including search slips used to process this request, file covers, multiple copies of the same documents if they appear in a file, tapes of any electronic surveillance, photographs, and logs of physical surveillance (FISUR). Please place missing documents on "special locate."
Please provide the material to me in an electronic form on CD-ROM.
Ivan Greenberg, Ph.D.
