    It gave them time to warm up the shredder ...

    And they do it too ... I have had several FOIA requests for records (and if two gov't agencies have the same record I usually seek out the record from both ~ like an email to another agency so that 1 agency has it being sent and a 2nd having it received) where one agency discloses the record but the other does not.
