    The state secrets bullshit has no basis in written law, no basis in the actions of our elected legislators, and yet is being used to allow the executive to commit crimes.

    U.S. vs. Reynolds was based on a lie, is now known to have been ruled wrongly, and should not be considered good precedent.

    Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.
