O.K., so now we won't go with the Executive Privilege, now they don't have to defend themselves because they are claiming the "State Secrets"
doctrine protects them. Nobody ever has to know what the President or the Executive Branch are EVER doing, according to this administration, not even
What is the most worrisome thing about this is that they claim "the president has inherent and unchecked power to shield national security
information from disclosure, either to plaintiffs in court or to congressional overseers", does this sound like the way our government is
supposed to be run?
Did we elect a President or a King?
This is giving the President unchecked powers, not even a Congressional Oversee Committee gets to know anything, one of the basic ideas our
forefathers put in the Constitution was the system of "Checks & Balance" that would keep any one branch of the government from getting too powerful.
They constructed The Constitution so the government would be transparent to its citizens. Now its a government where the Executive Branch puts up
walls so the other branches of government don't even know exactly what's going on.
This Bush administration is ruining our whole system of government (especially the System of Checks & Balance) in 2 presidential terms.
