I'll be damned if I know why knowledge of a phone tree would help a
terrorist spread a pandemic faster, but I find it very easy to understand
why the powers that be wouldn't want certain people to know about the
extraconstitutional stuff mentioned in those documents, and it's not
terrorists they're worried about it's the American people, they don't want
them to know those embarrassing details.

Those decisions are pretty obvious, a terrorist could figure them out on
his own if he thought it was worth his time, although I can't imagine why
he would.
