FOIA request for videotapes of 9/11 Pentagon crash stalled

The U.S. Department of Justice has yet to respond to an October 24, 2005 appeal, filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), for 85 videotapes of the September 11, 2001 crash of Flight 77 into the Pentagon.

The existence of the videotapes “in the possession of the FBI [was] described in the declaration of Special Agent (“SA”) Jacqueline Maguire dated September 7, 2005, in the lawsuit captioned Bingham v. United States Department of Justice,” according to Scott A. Hodes, Attorney at Law.

Agent Maguire states that one videotape from a Pentagon security camera shows Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon. This videotape would be used as evidence in the case U.S. v. Zacarias Moussaoui.

The original FOIA Request No. 1030438-000 to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, filed on behalf of Scott Bingham, was denied on October 20, 2005.

Many still question what really happened at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. These videotapes may answer their questions.
