Judicial Watch Sues Administration for Records of Possible Leak of Bin Laden Records
Lonely Conservative ^ | 1/29/12 | Lonely Conservative

Judicial Watch filed a freedom of information request for documents pertaining to the possible leak of the information relating to the killing of Osama bin Laden to a Hollywood producer in August 2011. The administration has yet to cough up the information, so Judicial Watch is suing them.

The DOD admitted receiving the FOIA request on August 22, 2011, but advised Judicial Watch that “at this time, we are unable to make a release determination on your request within twenty (20) working days” of August 9, which would have been by September 6, 2011. The CIA acknowledged receiving the FOIA request on August 16, 2011, indicating that “the large number of FOIA requests CIA received has created unavoidable delays, making it unlikely that we can respond with the 20 working days the FOIA requires.”

Well, this stonewalling has dragged on for months and we still have no documents. We haven’t even been told by the Obama administration if documents would be produced – hence our lawsuit.

[Kathryn] Bigelow’s film, in production since 2008, originally intended to document the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden. The top secret Navy SEAL team mission that led to the capture and killing of bin Laden is reportedly the source for the film’s new content and conclusion.

The last time I checked and it was some time ago Judicial Watch has taken in $100,000,000+ in donations. What have they done with all that money? Not much.

Those donations were to a "charity". LOL! Yes, JW is a 501 nonprofit. To me that is a joke.

IIRC, the President can divulge any “secret” information anytime he pleases.

I could care less what they were given. I care a lot more about what I am forced to give.

“We the people” sit on our butts and watch our tax payer owned stuff being sold. Clinton rented out the Lincoln bedroom and AF One. We did nothing. I had hoped George Bush would do something. But he turned out to be a bigger whimp than his daddy when it came to dealing with the democrats.

Judicial Watch seems to file a lot of high profile suits but nothing ever seems to come of them. The publicity surrounding the filings raises a lot of money but you never hear of any successes. It seems to be so lucrative that Larry Klayman split off on his own.
