We processed your request in accordance with the FOIA, 5 U.S.C. � 552, as amended, and the CIA Information Act, 50 U.S.C. � 3141, as amended. After conducting a search reasonably calculated to uncover all relevant documents, we did not locate any responsive records that would reveal an openly acknowledged CIA affiliation with the subj ect. To the extent that your request seeks records, if any exist, that would reveal a classified association between the CIA and the subject of your request, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence or nonexistence of such records. The mere existence or nonexistence of such records is itself a classified fact. You may consider this finding a denial of this portion of your request pursuant to FOIA exemptions (b)(1) and (b)(3). Exemption (b)(3) pertains to information exempt from disclosure by statute. In this case, the relevant statutes are Section 6 of the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949, 50 U.S.C. � 3507, as amended, and Section 102A(i)(1) of the National Security Act of 1947, 50 U.S.C. � 3024, as amended. I have enclosed an explanation of exemptions for your reference and retention. As the CIA Information and Privacy Coordinator, I am the CIA official responsible for this determination.
