Freedom of Information Act Appeal
Subject: ADEX (Administrative Index)
Dear OIP Director:
This letter is an appeal under the Freedom of Information/Privacy Acts. On Aug. 11, 2009, I sent a letter via Fax to the FOIA office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) asking for all files on ADEX (Administrative Index). A copy of my request letter is enclosed.
By way of background, ADEX is a FBI detention list of Americans established in 1972. See the enclosed information on ADEX, which is from the book by Frank J. Donner, The Age of Surveillance.
The FOIA office at the FBI did not acknowledge receipt of my FOIA request. The 20-day time limit for acknowledging requests has passed. Therefore, I want to appeal my request for FBI files on ADEX.
