Judicial Watch Files FOIA Request Seeking Bin Laden Photos & Video
Obama won’t allow Americans to view a photo of a dead terrorist.
You can’t handle it.
Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request yesterday seeking the Bin Laden raid photos and video. The Defense Department has 20 days to legally respond.
The Central Daily reported:
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Department of Defense (DOD) seeking all photographs and/or video recordings of Osama (Usama) bin Laden taken during and/or after the U.S. military operation in Pakistan on or about May 1, 2011. The request to the Defense Department was filed yesterday, May 3. An identical request was filed today with the CIA.
Under the Freedom of Information Act, the agencies have 20 business days legally to respond.
President Obama’s decision not to release the bin Laden photos is at odds with his promises to make his administration the most transparent in history. Judicial Watch hopes its FOIA requests will provide a mechanism to release these records in an orderly fashion in compliance with the FOIA law.
