Info: Our guest is Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch is a conservative watchdog group started in 1994. Its mission statement says the organization "promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics, and the law." It monitors government agencies and cabinet offices on a variety of ethical questions. In 2006, Judicial Watch was successful in getting the Pentagon to release security camera video of the 9/11 airliner crash into the building. During the Clinton administration, Judicial Watch was involved in getting the administration to release a variety of records, including ones dealing with information pertaining to private organizations traveling with the Commerce Department on foreign trips. Mr. Fitton has been with Judicial Watch for 11 years and president for the past six years.
