…so we made your secret law secret so you can keep secret about your secrets!
from the but-not-completely dept
We’ve talked about the absolute ridiculousness of having a secret interpretation of a US law on surveillance such that the law actually means something different than what most people (including the politicians voting on it) think it means — and yet the secret law remains in place for entirely secret reasons. The EFF, as part of an ongoing dispute over all of this, had submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request concerning some testimony on that secret interpretation, and it got back a “relevant” document… which as almost entirely redacted.
We have gotten the government we deserve by re-electing the people who do crap like this.
