How about a mystery involving questionable FBI activities and a radical mosque in Harlem? Sounds like typical news fare for 2018. However, this particular mystery occurred four decades ago, and we aren’t going to let it go.
We have sued the U.S. Department of Justice Justice, as well as the City of New York and the New York Police Department (NYPD), to compel them to release information regarding the April 14, 1972, murder of police officer Phillip Cardillo at a mosque in Harlem. Cardillo was killed while responding to a fake “10-13″officer in distress phone call.
We filed the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice after it failed to adequately search for records responsive to our May 15 FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-024687)).
