6. Most of the judges are clearly siding with the journalists...


The panel peppered the government lawyer, Capt. Chad Fisher, about why the executive branch forced the case to go to court rather than devise a system for public access.

"Instead of making a constitutional case about this, why not just make it available?" Judge Ryan asked, adding that the government chose litigation over "simple and reasonable" solutions.


The question of jurisdiction is one that is being worked on, but it seems that the Obama Administration has final say over release of these documents, and clearly they can be affected by politics. Too bad the AP reporting chose to leave out significant details of this story.
