Judicial Watch v. Federal Bureau of Investigation (No.06-1135)

NOVEMBER 01, 2011

Judicial Watch lawsuit to obtain previously unseen footage of Flight 77 striking the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request on December 15, 2004, seeking all records pertaining to camera recordings from the Sheraton National Hotel, the Nexcomm/Citgo gas station, Pentagon security cameras and the Virginia Department of Transportation.On May 16, 2006, Judicial Watch forced the Department of Defense to release video footage of American Airlines flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon on 9/11. The videos had been kept secret by the DoD until Judicial Watch filed the FOIA request and, eventually, a lawsuit stating that the DoD had “no legal basis” to refuse release of the footage. On September 15, 2006, Judicial Watch released videos from the CITGO gas station near the Pentagon, which was released by the FBI in response to the FOIA request.Judicial Watch is committed to completing the public record of the 9/11 attacks.

    “.Judicial Watch is committed to completing the public record of the 9/11 attacks.” It looks to me from reading the record that JW requested 85 videos; the Court directed the government to show cause why the request should not be granted. The government failed to show cause, and offered one video, and there it stopped. An FBI agent gave an affidavit that she reviewed 29 of the 85 videos and only one or two of them were pertinent. What happened to the other 56? Are efforts ongoing?

    What about the other 56 videos that Jacqueline Maguire of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division did not admit to personally reviewing?
