The judge didn't order the feds to suddenly release all sorts of classified or secret information. All the judge did was to tell the Justice Department that it has to speed up its response to a request for information about the National Security Agency program. And the information that initially will be released will be very unspecific. The big battles are yet to come over how much of this stuff eventually is made public.

I'm not sure that jurors are really going to care about the niceties of mental illness when they hear someone mock 9-11 that way. It's such an inhuman perspective on a tragedy, so full of spite and hate, that jurors may decide there is no place on this earth for this guy.

Clearly, there is more to this story than what has been made public; than what defense attorneys or the prosecutor have disclosed. There has to be because what has been talked about publicly is a terribly weak case; one that even an eager grand jury would not have embraced the way this one did.

Each time you go before a grand jury as a target or a subject or a person of interest ? or anyone else other than a plain old witness ? you put yourself in legal jeopardy.

He's in a no-win situation at sentencing and he probably knows it.

This scenario ? sending the case back down for more consideration ? was discussed at length during the oral argument on the case so I'm not sure that the parties here are terribly surprised that the Court would punt on the merits and perhaps avoid the issue altogether. The Court frequently does this, in cases large and small.
