Court Recognizes that Rendition Requires Keeping Secrets
Amazingly enough, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals actually ruled in favor of state secrets and against a lawsuit brought by the ACLU on behalf of individuals who claim they were kidnapped and tortured. The ruling is a major blow to terrorist rights supporters and their efforts to cripple U.S. intelligence operations. They've vowed to take the case to the Supreme Court, where it will hopefully be dismissed for good.
