The agency disclosed 333 pages, which Jobe contended were non-responsive. The agency withheld 2,349 pages under Exemption 5 (privileges), although it later agreed to review the documents for potential disclosure. The agency also told Jobe that 1,553 pages had not been processed because they originated with other agencies.
