PostSubject: Court: CIA's Defense of Drone Secrecy 'Neither Logical Nor Plausible'   Sat Mar 16, 2013 1:04 pm

The American Civil Liberties Union claimed a small victory against the CIA on Friday, following a federal court ruling that determined the CIA cannot deny its "intelligence interest" in the targeted killing program or continue its argument that the program's literal existence remains a secret protected by national security claims.

The unanimous ruling by a three judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said it was neither "logical nor plausible" for President Obama and other top officials to brag about the drone program publicly one day, but subsequently allow the CIA to refuse acknowledgement of the programs existence.

The ACLU filed a Freedom of Information Act request for documents on the secretive drone program, but has been repeatedly rebuffed with claims of "national security."

"This is an important victory. It requires the government to retire the absurd claim that the CIA's interest in the targeted killing program is a secret, and it will make it more difficult for the government to deflect questions about the program's scope and legal basis," said ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer, who argued the case before a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Appeals Court in September.
