    I never said they don't abuse their many powers. They most certainly do. But my point has nothing to do with that.

    I see, but the op speaks directly to what's being leaked, and that there are more than a quarter of a million citizens on a watch list, who have no reason to be on it. That may be damaging to WH credibility, but again its not damaging to NS?

    And I don't disagree there. The no-fly list is a travesty of justice and an affront to our constitutional rights, especially the right to face one's accuser. My initial remark wasn't a response to the OP, but to jamesrage's comment that only troop movements during time of war should be secret. That is the only thing on which I have commented, but have been forced to respond to others in the process.
