We are trying to copy a file using the CLI for AWS to an S3 bucket.

aws s3 cp e:\myfolder\2020\11\15 s3://xmode-data-exports/XXXXX/2020/11/15 --recursive --include *

We are getting an error message: An error occurred (AccessDenied) when calling the GetObjectTagging operation: Access Denied

We have a policy on the bucket:

    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Id": "PolicyXXX",
    "Statement": [
            "Sid": "StmtXXXX",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Principal": {
                "AWS": "arn:aws:iam::XXXXX:user/transfer2"
            "Action": [
            "Resource": [

Any ideas?  These permissions are going to be the death of me.
