Government Secrets?By Emelius at 9:54 PM
When you think of high level classified government secrets, I know you were not thinking of these. That is right, the meetings were held, the reports were read, and the American people are scratcing their heads. Things range from a plot to kill Santa Claus to Iraqi's buying aluminum tubes at the outragous price of $17.00 each (So you know they were up to no good). Some are fun and some are an outrage.
Steven Aftergood, director of a Federation of American Scientists project on secrecy, said some classification was clearly designed to conceal illegality or avoid embarrassment, even though that is forbidden.
Aftergood cited the "secret" stamp on Army Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba's report of "numerous incidents of sadistic, blatant and wanton criminal abuses" inflicted on Iraqi inmates at Abu Ghraib prison.
