Exclusive: Judicial Watch Files FOIA for Information Related to Closing of WWII Memorial

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act request to get to the bottom of the National Park Service's actions at the World War II Memorial in Washington this week. The NPS has barricaded the memorial and on Tuesday tried to prevent veterans from visiting the memorial, which has no amenities and is normally open to the public at all times.


The Judicial Watch FOIA request reads:


The National Park service has closed facilities that are either unmanned or take no federal funding, and says that the Obama administration ordered the shutdown. Anna Eberly, managing director of the Claude Moore Colonial Farm in Virginia, told Tatler that the NPS is renting the barricades that it is using to enforce the closures, an increase in the service's operating costs at a time that the government is partially shut down.
