I have low expectations on receiving any information given it is the CIA, but it can’t hurt to ask. Depending on the requester type, the CIA may charge a fee for an FOIA search, however a fee waiver request can be made, as I detailed below. I would like to thank ChatGPT for assisting me with the formatting of this request.

FOIA Request:

“I am writing to request access to records and documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), specifically related to Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and Non-Human Intelligence (NHI). I am interested in obtaining information, reports, analyses, and other relevant documents that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) may have in its possession regarding these phenomena. This request encompasses records from January 1, 1980, to the present date.

Please provide any documents, reports, studies, memos, briefings, correspondence, or other materials related to the following topics:

Any CIA assessments, investigations, or analyses of UAP and NHI occurrences, including reports or summaries of incidents involving unknown aerial objects with apparent advanced capabilities. Any interactions, communications, or cooperation between the CIA and other government agencies, international organizations, or research institutions related to UAP and NHI investigations. Any policies, guidelines, or procedures that the CIA follows when encountering or investigating UAP and NHI incidents. Any communications, briefings, or reports related to the declassification or public release of UAP and NHI-related information.

Regarding classified materials and Special Access Programs (SAPs), I also request any information or records related to:

The existence of any SAPs or waived/unacknowledged SAPs that pertain to UAP and NHI research, investigation, or analysis. Any documents that outline procedures for handling, storing, or declassifying classified materials related to UAP and NHI phenomena.

If portions of the requested records are exempt from release under FOIA, I request that you provide me with a detailed explanation of the redaction or withholding, citing the specific FOIA exemption(s) invoked.

I understand that FOIA requires agencies to respond to requests within 20 business days. If for any reason you anticipate any delay in responding to this request, please provide information about the reason for the delay and an estimated date of completion.

Please send the requested documents in electronic format, if possible, to the following email address: “u/ZephyrShow’s email address”. If electronic format is not possible, please provide the documents in physical form to the following mailing address: “u/ZephyrShow’s address”.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I look forward to receiving the requested information within the statutory timeframe. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me at ““u/ZephyrShow’s cell” or “u/ZephyrShow’s email address”.

Sincerely,

“u/ZephyrShow”

Fee Waiver Justification:

“The requested documents and information regarding Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and Non-Human Intelligence (NHI) hold significant public interest due to recent events that have underscored the need for government transparency, accountability, and the understanding of potential national security implications. The testimony of Mr. David Grusch, a former National Reconnaissance Officer Representative from the Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Task Force within the Department of Defense, presented before the U.S. House Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs during the hearing titled “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena: Implications on National Security, Public Safety, and Government Transparency,” highlighted the importance of addressing these matters openly and comprehensively.

The following points further emphasize the public interest and necessity for a fee waiver in this request:

National Security Concerns: Mr. Grusch’s testimony and the broader discussion surrounding UAP and NHI phenomena underscore the potential impact on national security. The disclosure of related information, particularly from authoritative sources such as the CIA, is crucial for informed public discourse on these matters and for understanding potential security risks. Public Safety: The public’s safety can be affected by information pertaining to unidentified aerial phenomena and potential interactions with advanced technologies. By obtaining access to relevant documents, the public can be better informed about any risks associated with UAP and NHI incidents. Government Transparency and Accountability: The disclosure of information related to UAP and NHI phenomena aligns with principles of government transparency and accountability. Sharing documents and analyses with the public promotes trust and demonstrates the government’s commitment to being responsive to the concerns of citizens. Scientific and Technological Advancement: Given the potential technological advancements implied by UAP and NHI phenomena, access to related records can contribute to scientific research and innovation. The public interest in understanding these phenomena is not limited to curiosity; it extends to technological progress and a broader understanding of the universe. Historical Significance: The documentation of UAP and NHI incidents and analyses holds historical significance for future generations. These records could provide insights into how such phenomena were handled and understood by government agencies and contribute to a more comprehensive historical record.

Considering these factors, the requested information directly serves the public’s interest in understanding the implications of UAP and NHI phenomena. As such, I kindly request that the CIA grant a fee waiver for this request to facilitate the dissemination of this critical information to the public and promote government transparency.

Thank you for your consideration.”
