Judicial Watch is an American government watchdog organization founded in 1994. The group uses litigation as its primary tool and came to public attention after filing eighteen lawsuits against the administration of Democratic U.S. President Bill Clinton and figures in the Clinton administration. The organization was the first to expose John Huang's illegal fund-raising activities relating to the 1996 United States campaign finance controversy (also known as Chinagate).
They have also received a great deal of funding from Clinton critics, including
$7.74 million from conservative
anti-Clinton billioniare Richard Mellon Scaife. 
This led Clinton administration officials to accuse them of "abusing the judicial system for partisan ends". 
FBI must correct disclosures on evacuation of Saudis
RAW STORY / November 20, 2006
A U.S. district court judge has ordered the FBI to correct disclosures regarding the US government's evacuation of Saudi royals and bin Laden family members after the September 11 attacks in 2001, a conservative watchdog organization announced today.
"Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that U.S. District Court Judge Richard W. Roberts of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to submit 'proper disclosures' to the Court and Judicial Watch by December 15, 2006 concerning the U.S. government's evacuation of Saudi royals and members of the bin Laden family from the United States immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks," the group said in a press release obtained by RAW STORY.
Judicial Watch notes that Judge Roberts criticized "the adequacy of redaction descriptions, the accuracy of the sworn statement submitted with the documents, the validity of exemption claims, and other errors in the FBI’s disclosures.
"The FBI’s 220-page annotated production and accompanying … Declaration together do not, as they must, provide sufficient detail or precision about the withheld information … the FBI’s motion for summary judgment will be denied and the FBI will be directed to file disclosures that fairly meet the requirements of [court precedent]," wrote Judge Roberts.
Judge Roberts added that one particular FBI exemption argument "strains credulity."
According to Judicial Watch, US government documents reveal that 160 Saudis flew from the US between September 11 and September 15, 2001.

I have done a bit of reserch into
They are VERY conservative, and get their funding from the same place.
Judicial Watch, is also the same people that brought us the (new) Pentagon Video, from the FOIA request.
By the way, the New Pentagon
video was released after the Moussaoui trial, because it was part of an
"ongoing investigation". The problem with this is , they had already released PART of 1 video.
What does releasing the rest of the video have do to the Moussaoui trial ?
