Dear Ms. Singh:

I refer to our letter dated December 17, 2004, regarding the
release of certain Department of State material under the
Freedom of Information Act (Title 5 USC Section 552).

As you may recall, in the case of Segment ER2 further

coordination was required before decisions could be made as

to the release of three documents previously retrieved in

response to your request. The coordination has now been

completed for two of them and we find that one may be
released in full and one may be released with excisions. A

copy of the released documents is enclosed.

The material in the excised portions of the document
released in part is currently and properly classified under
Executive Order 12958 in the interest of national defense or
foreign relations. As such, it is exempt from release under
subsection (b)(1) of the Freedom of Information Act.

In the case of a document released in part, all non-exempt
material that is reasonably segregable from the exempt
material has been released.

We will provide further information about this segment as
the coordination is completed.
