Mr. ——————— Serial: J9014A ————————– ————————- 20
Dear Mr. —————– This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act request of 8 January 1986 in which you request information on a group referred to as MJ12 or “Majestic 12” and Projects Sigma, Snowbird and Aquarius.
Please be advised that Sigma and Snowbird are not projects of this Agency, so we would have no records responsive to that portion of your request. In addition, no records were located relating to M12 or “Majestic 12.”
An initial survey of materials responsive to that portion of your request dealing with Project Aquarius would result in search fees in excess of $15,000 for manpower and computer costs. Our search would be facilitated and the search fees may be less if you provide us with additional information regarding the type of information in which you are interested. This request for further specificity is in accordance with DoD regulations governing the processing of FOIA requests.
Should you wish us to initiate a search for records responsive to your request as stated in your 8 January letter, please be advised that our policy is to request advance payment of one-half the estimated cost, as well as an agreement to pay the balance, prior to initiating the search.
Please be advised that your agreeing to incur these fees will not necessarily result in the disclosure to you of any information. It has been our experience, that any records responsive to your request, if such records exist, most likely would be classified or otherwise exempt from release in accordance with the exemption provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. The application of these exemptions to NSA information has been consistently approved by the Federal Judiciary.
