I Could Tell You, But Then I Would Have To Kill You

Judge dismissed prisoner's lawsuit on national security grounds

ROCKVILLE, Md. A federal judge in Maryland says a prisoner's private interests have to "give way to the national interest in preserving state secrets."

U-S District Judge T.S. Ellis is dismissing a lawsuit by a German man who said he was illegally detained and tortured in overseas prisons run by the C-I-A.Ellis says a secret written briefing from the director of central intelligence convinced him that letting Khaled al-Masri (kha-LED' ahl MAHZ'-ree) sue the C-I-A would harm national security.The ruling makes no determination on the validity of al-Masri's case. Al-Masri claims he was kidnapped, brutally beaten and drugged over five months before he was dumped on an abandoned road in Albania.

Dammit. Sounds like the most basic human rights have to give way so that the CIA can preserve the most basic human rights. Sounds kinda stupid when you say it no?
