While I still cannot decide if the Justice Department overstepped it's bounds in the Jefferson case, this serial abuse by the Bu$hCo administration should not be overlooked. In a NYT article from Sunday
Under Mr. Bush, the secrets privilege has been used to block a lawsuit by a translator at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Sibel Edmonds, who was fired after accusing colleagues of security breaches; to stop a discrimination lawsuit filed by Jeffrey Sterling, a Farsi-speaking, African-American officer at the Central Intelligence Agency; and to derail a patent claim involving a coupler for fiber-optic cable, evidently to guard technical details of government eavesdropping.
Does it seem to you that maybe they are stretching the good old exective privilige too far. No surprise the last big batch of so called state secret defences was during the Regan Administration. Good old Republican'ts. Can't fess up to their mistakes. Can't face the scrutiny of the truth. Just Can't.
Remember this when you Vote in December.
