Lies, lies, and more lies

“The power of federal judges to review the conduct of the executive branch, both in FOIA cases and in others, hangs in the balance.”
Judge Napolitano: “The Supreme Court has ruled over and over and over again: the government can lie to us…the remedy is not legal, it is political.”
“In what legal experts characterized as a rare finding, Judge Christensen concluded that the Government, as the defendant in the case, had ”perpetrated a fraud upon the court.” As a result of ”convoluted actions,” the judge said, ”the processes of the court were manipulated to the improper and unacceptable advantage of the defendants.””
