Judicial Watch: Release 9/11 Pentagon video

As most everyone knows, moments after the attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, the feds seized all public surveillance videos of the attack and have kept them classified.

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in December 2004 to have video footage released, but the Department of Defense denied it. The group has now filed a lawsuit against the DOD to force it to comply with the FOIA request.

“There is no legal or rational basis for the Department of Defense to withhold this video,” said JW President Tom Fitton. “There may be nothing of importance on this tape, but our experience has been that whenever the government takes extraordinary measures to keep the lid on documents, it is worth investigating.”
