WILLIAM G. WEAVER and ROBERT M. PALLITTO examine the state secrets privilege, the most powerful tool of secrecy available to the president of the United States. They conclude that the privilege is increasingly subject to abuse and is wrongly used to protect the executive branch from embarrassment, to hide criminal activity, and to thwart legal requests for information.
