Judicial Watch Files FOIA to Get bin Laden Death Pics

Saturday, 07 May 2011 02:33 PM

WASHINGTON -- 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 seeking all photographs and/or video recordings of  Osama bin Laden taken during and/or after the U.S. military operation in Pakistan that resulted in bin Laden's death.

The request to the  Defense Department was filed May 3. An identical request  was filed 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," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "Judicial Watch hopes its FOIA requests will provide a  mechanism to release these records in an orderly fashion in compliance  with the FOIA law. President Obama's reluctance to spike the  football is not a lawful reason for withholding these historic public  documents from the American people.  We are prepared to go to court to  obtain this information."
