Learning Experience

By Amelia Carpenter

Everything is a learning experience.

I filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for “records or information on Ronald Henry Tammen, Ronald Henry Tammen, Junior and Richard Tammen” that was processed April 30, 2011. Now I feel dumb. The CIA wrote back in a letter dated May 16, 2011 denying my request because it did not include all the necessary information. The CIA requires full names, dates, places of birth and citizenship status. In addition, the CIA collects fees only after the first two hours of search time and beyond 100 pages of reproduction. The date expired while I was traveling this summer, so I’ll have to refile a request with them to see if I can gather documents. It’ll be fun to find out what happens.
