"Clinton appointee. "
Well, Carter, then Clinton.
Seriously, I can't believe the government can be required to reveal anything that is classified. Hopefully it's non-classified stuff they are asking for.
What an epic blunder
Just say "no, take us to the SCOTUS court!"
There is an exception to the FOIA for classified documents. But that does not permit the Government to ignore the request-- they have to respond, on an item-by-item basis, and either release the document or assert whichever exceptions they think are applicable.
This judge did not order the Government to turn over any documents-- he ordered them to respond to the request. This is a valid order and will probably be upheld if it is appealed. I assume the Government will respond by asserting the national security exception.
How many dozens have times have we heard about "failure to connect the dots".
You can't connect dots if you don't collect dots.
Interesting ... thank you.
When are the judges going to be made to stop trying to manage this country? The judicial has no business meddling with the secret intelligence gathering programs used for the WOT. If I were GWB or Gonzales I would just plain ignore this judge - what enforcement official does he have at his disposal? STFU.
If I were GWB that is exactly what I would do - either push it up or completely ignore it. Judicial branch has no input on managing the war. Military Tribunals should rule.
Ya got me!
Some of these judges believe they are above the law - meaning they can rule whatever they want and it's the law. They are wrong on that count. If that were the case - there would be no law. Idiots!
Thats all the info they need!
WHAT are these judges thinking???
Links to the lawsuit and the judge's order on their homepage.
The Bush administration is free to ignore this "command". The Executive branch controls enforcement.
Screw the judge. Why can't this be left private as it is a concern of national security?
I just get the feeling that in the not too distant future all of the left's phoney legal complaints will seem VERY meaningless....This war will get a lot hotter before we prevail....
A bit off topic but not for long.....
Yeah. No need to be careful and circumspect. It's not like mistakes can happen from undue haste. Oh, wait...

Federal prosecutors and investigators in Dallas acknowledged in court documents that they mistakenly gave defense lawyers information about the inner-workings of secretive counterterrorism investigations. It took federal officials four months to discover that in April they had turned over secret court applications for wiretaps, which often have sensitive information from U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies, according to court papers that were unsealed this week. The materials were given to lawyers for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development and seven of its senior officers, who have been indicted on charges they illegally funneled millions of dollars to support the...
Take a cue from Nancy Reagan. Just say no. WTF is the judge gonna do, take someone's birthday away?
