Federal Judge Dismisses Lawsuit by Man Held in Terror Program
United States officials have acknowledged the principal elements of Mr. Masri's account, saying intelligence authorities may have confused him with an operative of Al Qaeda with a similar name. The officials also said he was released in May 2004 on the direct orders of Condoleezza Rice, then the national security adviser, after she learned he had been mistakenly identified as a terrorism suspect.

Masri knows what the government did to him.
The government knows what it did to him.
The public knows what the government did to him.
OK. Everybody knows.
The CIA says that if they confirm or deny what everybody already knows, then national security will be harmed.
The judge agreed.
Masri cannot sue about what everyone knows has happened, because if the CIA acknowledges what has already happened, then everyone will know what has happened, even though everyone already does know what happened.

Haven't I already read this book?
