Two government agencies took eleven years to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request, and in the end deferred the decision to another agency for further review.
The request from the non-partisan Judicial Watch organization was submitted to the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency in 2002 as part of a broad investigation into the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Judicial Watch promotes transparency and accountability in government and politics.
Judicial Watch said it received a letter on Tuesday saying the two agencies had no jurisdiction over release of the requested information and had forwarded the request to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) to consider.
