It's been almost a year since Osama bin Laden was killed, and we're all still pretty jazzed about that. But for some, the knowledge of bin Laden's death just isn't enough. "Government watchdog group" Judicial Watch sued to have the photos and video of dead bin Laden released. Today, U.S. district judge James said no.
"A picture may be worth a thousand words," wrote Boasberg. "Yet, in this case, verbal descriptions of the death and burial of Osama bin Laden will have to suffice, for this court will not order the release of anything more."
The CIA has said that while it has 52 records (photos and video) of the mission that killed bin Laden, the materials were classified and not subject to disclosure based on the Freedom of Information Act. Judge Boasberg was inclined to agree.
