"The go-to judge if you don’t want something released to the public"
Ossama Bin Laden's killing
In 2011, Boasberg blocked a FOIA request for photographic evidence of Ossama Bin Laden's killing, stating "A picture may be worth a thousand words. And perhaps moving pictures bear an even higher value. Yet, in this case, verbal descriptions of the death and burial of Osama Bin Laden will have to suffice, for this Court will not order the release of anything more."
