David Glass appears to be a DOJ lawyer representing NSA? Or maybe the FBI? Special agent (b)(3) with copy to (b)(6).
DOJ phone book is not working for Daniel Metcalfe as it did when we looked up Kovakas and Kornblut.

Mr. William H. Payne 13015 Calle de Sandias, NE Albuquerque, NM 87111 Re: Appeal No. 06-1191 Request No. 145-FOI-8492 BVE:GLB:CL
Dear Mr. Payne:
You appealed from the action of the Civil Division on records referred to it by the National Security Agency (NSA) in response to your request for records pertaining to yourself.
After carefully considering your appeal, I am affirming the Civil Division's action on the records referred to it. These records are exempt from the access provision of the Privacy Act of 1974 pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 552a(d)(5). See 28 C.F.R. § 16.89 (2006). Because these records are not available to you under the Privacy Act, your request has been reviewed under the Freedom of Information Act in order to afford you the greatest possible access to them.
The Civil Division properly withheld certain information that is protected from disclosu under the FOJA pursuant to:
5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(3), which concerns matters specifically exempted from release by statute (in this instance, 50 U.S.C. § 403g, which protects from public disclosure the functions, names, official titles, salaries or numbers of CIA personnel);
The Civil Division also referred 60 pages of those pages referred to it by NSA to the Federal Bureau of Investigation as these pages originated with the FBI. The FBI will process these records and respond directly to you. This referral was proper and in accordance with Department of Justice regulations. See 28 C.F.R. § 16.4(c).
Finally, with regard to the many other issues raised in your February 2, 2006 appeal letter relating generally to your civil litigation and complaints against government agencies, please nc that the principal administrative function of the Office of Information and Privacy is limited to the adjudication of appeals from denials of access by components of the Department of Justice 1 information requested under the Freedom of Information and Privacy Acts. Accordingly, this Office does not have the authority to discuss settlement of your civil actions or to act upon any the other issues raised in your February 2, 2006 letter. I regret that I can be of no further assistance to you.
If you are dissatisfied with my action on your appeal, you may seek judicial review in accordance with 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(4)(B).
Daniel J. Metcalf
