The FOIA requires requesters to "reasonably describe the records being sought."  This means you must describe the actual document(s) you seek or provide sufficient details to permit a search with a reasonable effort utilizing existing indices or search tools. The law does not require an agency to create a record, collect information, conduct research, or analyze data.  Broad, sweeping requests lacking specificity are not permissible.  Accordingly, we are returning your request for refinement and no further action will be taken by our office.  Once you have determined what records you are seeking, please resubmit your request.
 
3) All Peace Corps press releases for all incidents.
 
  
Attached please find 18 pages of responsive documents.  These are the most responsive documents available. No pages have been withheld. We are providing this to you.
