Submission + - NSA trial evidence 'riddled with boxes and arrows' (fas.org)

decora writes: "In the Espionage Act trial of NSA IT Whistleblower Thomas Drake, the main evidence against him are 5 documents he allegedly 'willfully retained' in his basement. The government, for the first time, is using the Silent Witness Rule to 'substitute' words in this evidence so that the public will not be able to see the allegedly sensitive information. The result of this 'substitution' process has been described by the defense as a tangled mess of boxes, arrows, and code words that will impossibly confuse the facts of the case. "Two weeks before trial, Mr. Drake and his counsel still do not know what evidence the jury will see""
