      ... daily kos, enhydra lutris, about parallel case construction, and now I'm seeing you argue that this decision was rendered just to keep evidence included at trial. Which is it?

      I would note, though, that this decision was rendered "Classified: TOP SECRET." Why was there a need to shamelessly do kabuki theater about rights when the Court and the parties had every reason to believe that this decision would probably not be made public for another 70 years?
