FOIPA adventures



If you receive a Glomar response to a FOIA request, you can use that to
file a Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR). You can request for the
records to be declassified and challenge the classification.

You have to make sure that you follow the correct procedure and appeal
to the ISCAP board in time.

On a side note, the US Navy, for months, lost my FOIA request about Tor
and the Navy finally transferred the request to the correct
department...where it continues to languish.
