Can any reaearhers comment from their experience on a few questions about a document that I will post, as an example....

https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/2018/docid-32303569.pdf

P. 11 and. 12 (PDF) 59 and 60 (typed) are missing from this document.

questions....

- would the archives be responsive to an inquiry as to whether the missing pages exist in their collection?

would the archives be responsive to an inquiry as to whether the missing pages exist anywhere?

- would the archives be responsive to an inquiry as to why the pages are missing?

- would the archives be responsive to request to provide the missing pages?

 

Thoughts?

I live in the UK and there is a piece of Freedom of Information requests I would like to clarify. In the UK we have had cases where the debate has been over whether the body requested to provide information is in fact a 'public' body to which the law applies. If this avenue of challenge is open in the USA are there any supposedly non-public bodies that FOIA requests about the assassination could be made? For example : Is a body that holds public records a public body?
