-
FYI and action. The documents he refers to are the supporting documents to the /
—1
administrative record designating certain groups as FTOs. (DOS request 1, /
#6). This is the first thing that they have made available (we have received /
nothing else yet) . •——/

This is unacceptable and we are being slow-walked. I thought that Justice
instructed the agencies to waive the third-party rule.

FYI, Treasury was making similar noises about this in our meeting this morning.

I am happy to respond to this but need more information about the status of the
third party rule. Please advise. Thank you.

John: Sorry to be taking some time with this. I understand that the
records you identified for copying include a fair number of intelligence
community documents. It looks like we will process through our system for
release those docs which are ours, but we will probably have to refer you to
CIA to obtain their docs that are part of our records. FYI at this point.

Thanks. To the extent you can bleed them out a box at a time, that would be

helpful. If there is an issue re volume, let me know that, too.

Karl:

We have completed the review of the FTO designation administrative records. At
the bottom of this e-mail is a list of the materials we would like copied.
They should all be marked by post-it notes, but in the event that they are not,
this list should control. Thank you very much, and extend my thanks to Jean
McCray, for this.

Do you have a sense of the status of the remaining of the documents we agreed
to at our June 30 meeting? Thanks.

John,

Team 1 finished up at State yesterday tabbing the administrative records.
Below is what I believe is a complete list of everything that was tabbed for
xeroxing by either Team 1 or Team 4. If this agrees with your notes, then you
could please send this on to State? They understandably want a list in
writing, in addition to the tabs. Also, Jean thought that Carl Hoffman would
be the appropriate recipient over there. Thanks!

Karl hasn't got back to me, but what I will propose to him is a dedicated
reading room where we can go and review the documents according to our
timetable. The difficulty is that they are using these documents to prepare
renewals, so each set may be available off and on. Additionally, I would
like to review and release the documents as soon as we can, so we are not
tying up documents for months at a time. Obviously, administrative
convenience will take a back seat to our investigative needs, but to the
extent we can move documents through the process, I think we should.

John,

Thanks for cc'ing me on the e-mail. We would be interested in seeing the
documents you would like copied from State. In addition, I think we might want
to go over there ourselves and check out the entire AQ administrative records
and those of affiliated groups -- is State going to continue to make these
records available for review over there?
