Our Supreme Court: Open Government too hard and scary for the likes of us

From Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court set aside on Thursday a ruling that Vice President Dick Cheney must produce records of the energy task force he headed in 2001 or give a detailed explanation of what was withheld and why.

The justices sided with the government. They ruled a U.S. appeals court was wrong in concluding it lacked authority to give relief to the government because the government could protect its rights by asserting executive privilege to keep the documents secrets when the case went back to the judge.
