Federal Judge Rules In Favor Of Drone Strike Secrecy

 The 75-page ruling gave a pass to the U.S. Justice Department, declaring that the U.S. government is under no obligation to make public the details of extensive drone operations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. The ruling expands U.S. impunity in ongoing incursions that have killed thousands of civilians since 2004.

In the ruling, Judge Colleen McMahon struck down Freedom of Information Act Requests filed on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the family members of three Americans assassinated by drone strikes in 2011.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, 75-page ruling. What really happened was that the Military is under special contract, one way or another, that invokes secrecy within the terms of the contract, and can, therefore, be held inviolate under Article 1 Section 10 clause 1. Of course, the judge had to find some way to rule without showing the real reason for ruling as she did, because the contract probably states that the terms of the contract must remain secret, on a need-to-know basis.

When are we the people going to wake up to the fact that we can form an agreement among ourselves that nullifies all the arbitrary laws Government has set up against us? But we can't do it very easily if we don't know that we can do it, right?
