I sent the following email to FOIAStatus@state.gov today:
Eight days ago, I sent you an email requesting the status of my FOIA Request, Case Number 200901145. I have not received a reply. I also sent an email to you about a year ago and have not gotten a reply from that one either.
I have made 4 telephone calls to your office and been unable on any occasion to receive any information on when I might expect to receive a response to my FOIA except that it could take “up to a year.” My request was filed in January of 2009.
I expect a response within 5 business days as to exactly when I might expect to receive a response.
