Very generously sent to me by (redacted).

I suggest you send this FOIA request to the NSA:

September , 2011 National Security Agency ATTN: FOIA Office (DJP4) 9800 Savage Road STE 6248 Ft. George G. Meade, MD 20755-6248


Dear NSA Freedom of Information Act Officer:

This is a request under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. I request a copy of each document at the National Security Agency concerning the famous KRYPTOS Sculpture at the Central Intelligence Agency, and in particular its not yet decrypted fourth message. I am particularly interested in receiving documents that have not been previously publicly released.

You may limit this request to documents originated at the NSA or from NSA employees. Please search all indices likely to contain such records. I understand that NSA analysts have written about the KRYPTOS problem as a training exercise.

This request falls into the fee category “Representatives of the News Media” because I write and publish an extensive and popular blog on cryptography in general and in particular on aspects of decrypting the Kryptos sculpture inscriptions. I agree to pay up to $30 for statutory costs associated with this request. Thank you,
