Latest judicial watch Items
The killing of Osama bin Laden last year was referenced repeatedly this week at the Democratic National Convention. This is ironic, as President Obama, in denying requests for basic information about the raid, said he wasn't going to release the information because he didn't want to be seen as "spiking the football."
The Washington-based legal group Judicial Watch earlier this month sent an investigator to Guantanamo Bay Naval Air Station, Cuba, to watch the May 5 arraignment of Khalid Shaikh Mohammad (aka KSM) and four others accused of plotting and executing the Sept. 11, 2001, airline attacks.
A year after the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda is hobbled and hunted, too busy surviving for the moment to carry out another Sept. 11-style attack on U.S. soil. But the terrorist network dreams still of payback, and U.S. counterterrorist officials warn that, in time, its offshoots may deliver.
First lady Michelle Obama's much-criticized trip to Spain in 2010 cost taxpayers at least $467,000, a government watchdog group said Thursday after obtaining Secret Service and Air Force documents.
First lady Michelle Obama is challenging assertions she's forcefully imposed her will on White House aides, saying she's tired of people portraying her as "some kind of angry black woman."
The Justice Department has been empowered to use millions of dollars intended to go to victims of racial discrimination to enrich pressure groups with close White House ties. It's another revelation of the means the Obama administration is using to divert funds to political cronies.
Five days after being killed, Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi was finally buried at dawn in an undisclosed location in the Sahara desert. This would have been five days too late had President Obama been calling the shots. Osama bin Laden's remains were famously disposed of within hours of his death and "eased into the sea" in conformance with Islamic practice, according to the White House. Families of the victims of bin Laden's atrocities have to take the government's word for it that he's actually dead because the Obama administration continues to refuse to provide proof.
In an embarrassing defeat for the Obama administration, a federal court ruled on Aug. 17 that Secret Service White House visitor logs are agency records subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell issued the decision in a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch.
