To Whom It May Best Concern (and Whoever Has Some Time),

I was wondering if your office had ever heard of the Kryptos sculpture and/or attempted a solution to the fourth part?

I recently submitted a FOIA about the Kryptos sculpture to the FBI’s FOIPA office/Record-Information Dissemination office but there were no responsive main file records found.  This is not an attempt to circumvent the process but it seemed curious that the FBI’s Cryptanalysis group wouldn’t have taken a look at Kryptos and given it a shot. Seemed worth it to just ask you guys directly.  I included a copy of my original request letter and the official response from David Hardy for what it’s worth.




UPDATE:  Shouldn’t have included the original FOIA info, they basically sent the same answer as before.
