Re: Freedom of Information Act Request

ATTN: Admin. Planning & Policy
1300 Pennsylvania Ave., Rm 6SE
Washington, DC 20229


This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. §552) and the regulations thereunder. I am more than willing  to pay any reasonable research and copies fees for responding to this request; however, if the costs thereof should exceed $100, please inform me in advance of producing the requested documents. I am not a commercial requester and I seek the  documents requested below for personal reasons.

Subject of FOIA: Timothy James McVeigh, deceased (Executed June 11, 2001)

I want copies of all entry visas relating to Timothy James McVeigh from December 31 1991 until April 19, 1995.

If and when McVeigh entered the United States from another country, he would have to have his passport stamped and a record of that entry or entries during the time frame above is, what I am requesting. Any and all copies of re-entry into the United States by  McVeigh should give the nation he arrived from and the date.

Very truly yours,

Devvy Kidd

On September 16, 2002, I received a letter from the U.S. Customs Service which stated "Please be advised that we have no records responsive to your request."

On October 14, 2002 I filed an appeal.

On October 22, 2002, I received another letter from Customs stating that they are working my appeal.

I don't file these FOIAs because I don't have anything else to do with my time. I file them because I am seeking proof of information that is in the public domain. Some of it may be important pieces to the puzzle that is still the on-going cover up regarding the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995.

If you have not seen the film, Cover-Up in Oklahoma City, I strongly encourage you to get a copy and see the raw, unedited footage of what unfolded that day:
