On Monday, January 30, 2017 I posted to my blog that President Trump Needs to Intercede In Florida Bulldog vs DOJ & FBI Lawsuit and Order Judge Zloch to Open Files of Secret Sarasota 9/11 Investigation. The Sarasota Herald Tribune and the Miami Herald joined the Florida Bulldog in the Federal Lawsuit against the Department of Justice and the FBI concerning the 2002 Secret Sarasota Saudi investigation which compiled in excess of 80,000 pages. Back on April 30th 2014 the FBI has identified four more boxes of “classified” 9/11 documents held by its Tampa field office. The government, however, has yet to comply with a federal judge’s orders that it turn over, it took 2 years for FBI to give up the info what the hell?
BROWARD BULLDOG: March 1st, 2017 A Miami federal judge excoriated the FBI for what she called its “shameful” delays in making public certain records about the bureau’s 9/11 Review Commission. “It is distressing to see the length to which a private citizen must go” to obtain records under the Freedom of Information Act [FOIA],” said U.S. District Judge Cecilia Altonaga. “It’s quite shocking frankly.” The ruling put off for now an unusual FOIA trial that had been scheduled to begin next week, March 6th. “The judge has done an excellent job moving this difficult case forward irrespective of the FBI’s stall tactics,” said attorney Thomas Julin, a partner in the Miami office of the Gunster law firm who represents Florida Bulldog (Broward Bulldog). “This short delay will not put the Bulldog off the scent.” Assistant U .S. Attorney Carlos Raurell represents the government. He declined to comment.

According to the Government, Exemption 7(D)applies in the April 30, 2014 Report to protect names and information provided by third parties under implied assurance of confidentiality” and by “a local law enforcement agency" that obtained the information from their own confidential sources. As to the first justification–protecting the names of third parties who spoke to the FBI under an implied assurance of confidentiality–the FBI explains it “inferred” the individuals “provided information . . . only because they believed their cooperation. . . , and the information they provided, would remain confidential.” The FBI further states it inferred the individuals spoke only because they believed their identities would remain undisclosed, as the investigation involved terrorism, a violent crime. Because the FBI asserts the source spoke with an implied assurance of confidentiality, given the information concerned violent criminal activities that could place the source “in harm’s way should the [individual’s] identity. . . become known” the Government properly withholds this information under Exemption 7(D).
