This is a letter dated 7/6/2004 from John Helgerson, Acting Inspector General of CIA, to the Intelligence Oversight Board. The CIA withheld in full a 6-page document enclosed with the letter. The letter and enclosure conveyed to the Intelligence Oversight Board the comments of the Department of Justice on the CIA Inspector General's report to the Board. The letter notes a recommendation that the CIA's General Counsel "request a current legal opinion from DoJ." Apparently, once CIA requested a legal opinion, the DoJ requested the CIA "make certain changes to the Report itself." The CIA "determined this to be impracticable." All other information about the report and the DOJ's determination on the report has been redacted.
