StumbleUponSecrecy invoked on Abramoff lawsuitsAdministration Employs New Secrecy Defense in Lawsuits Over Abramoff's White House VisitsPETE YOSTAP NewsDec 01, 2007 16:32 ESTThe Bush administration is laying out a new secrecy defense in an effort to end a court battle about the White House visits of now-imprisoned lobbyist Jack Abramoff.The administration agreed last year to produce all responsive records about the visits "without redactions or claims of exemption," according to a court order.But in a court filing Friday night, administration lawyers said that the Secret Service has identified a category of highly sensitive documents that might contain information sought in a lawsuit about Abramoff's trips to the White House.The Justice Department, citing a Cold War-era court ruling, declared that the contents of the "Sensitive Security Records" cannot be publicly revealed even though they could show whether Abramoff made more visits to the White House than those already acknowledged.
The Raw Story | Secrecy invoked on Abramoff lawsuits

Absolutely hilarious, Abramoff's wingnut crookery is know a matter of National Security. You just can't make this stuff up. Many questions storm the mind as to how Abramoff's visits involved Secret Service secrets. Maybe that creepy outfit Abramoff wore to court was his "double super secret" spy uniform? Or maybe Abramoff was undercover  when he bilked the Indian Tribes out of millions. Think of it, it's perfect, Abram was secretly sniffing out any possible terra plots by those shifty Injun's while picking up a few bucks in the progress. It's all Goviment money anyway, so no harm no foul.

Pathetic no longer describes the Bush administration. I'm not sure any word in the English language  does.
