Meade, MD 20755-6248 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 AntiPolygraph.org. 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. Sincerely, George W. Maschke AntiPolygraph.org PS: A copy of this Freedom of Information Act request will be placed on-line at http://antipolygraph.org/foia/foia-011.shtml
