From the New York Times:

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 — A federal judge ruled today that the government had no right to conceal the names of more than 1,000 people detained following the Sept. 11 attacks and ordered that their names be released within 15 days.

The ruling was a significant setback to the Bush administration’s policy of secret detentions of immigrants in connection with the investigation into the terrorist attacks.

This is why a country needs an independent judiciary.
