"The Supreme Court refused Monday to consider whether the government properly withheld names and other details about hundreds of foreigners detained in the months after the Sept. 11 terror attacks."
Yeah, we don't really need to think about that too deeply.
"Twenty-three news organizations and media groups, including the Associated Press, joined in asking the high court to hear the case.
?It is the responsibility of courts, and especially this court, to provide meaningful judicial review when the government invokes national security to justify unprecedented secrecy in exercising its awesome power to arrest and detain hundreds of people,? lawyers for the Center for National Security Studies argued in a court filing."
Yeah, I gotta agree with that.
More at the Miami Herald; thanks to Fark.
