The question is, how do we put in an official request for the footage to be released? Does it cost money? Do we have to pay court costs?
Judicial Watch originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request on December 15, 2004, seeking all records pertaining to September 11, 2001 camera recordings of the Pentagon attack from the Sheraton National Hotel, the Nexcomm/Citgo gas station, Pentagon security cameras and the Virginia Department of Transportation. The Department of Defense admitted in a January 26, 2005 letter that it possessed a videotape responsive to Judicial Watch’s request. However, the Pentagon refused to release the videotape because it was, “part of an ongoing investigation involving Zacarias Moussaoui.” Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit on February 22, 2006 arguing that there was “no legal basis” for the Defense Department’s refusal to release the tape.

perhaps ats should dedicate a section for foi requests which is paid for by sponsorship & additional advertising. that way, non-u.s. persons could help to contribute to costs.

Also, when the latest tape was released the government stated that "there will be no more videos forthcoming". So, that's all they plan to release. Ever.

Valhall pressed NIST to release the photos and videos they're withholding from the public. They told her that they'd be happy to if she paid them something like $10,000 dollars, if I remember correctly. But I suspect if she had offered the money, some problem would have come up.
