Dear Sir or Madam:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 
552). I request that a copy of the following documents be 
provided to me:

1. NSA/CSS Regulation No. 122-3, Polygraph Examination and 
   Examiners, Annex D (April 6, 1984) and any superceding 
   version of, or amendment to, this regulation.

2. Any other NSA rule, regulation, directive, or similar 
   document related to polygraph policy.

The specific document cited above is mentioned in the 
bibliography of James Bamford's book, Body of Secrets, and a 
copy of it was evidently made available to him.

In order to help you determine my status for the purpose of 
assessing fees, you should know that this request is made for 
public interest purposes and not for commercial use. Any 
documents released pursuant to this request will be made 
publicly available at no cost on the website

I am willing to pay fees for this request up to a maximum of 
$25. If you estimate that the fees will exceed this limit, 
please inform me first.

I request, however, a waiver of fees for this request because 
disclosure of the requested information to me is in the public 
interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to 
public understanding of the operations or activities of the NSA 
and is not in my commercial interest.


George W. Maschke
